BSTRING(3) Library Functions Manual BSTRING(3)NAME
bcopy, bcmp, bzero, ffs - bit and byte string operations
bcopy(src, dst, length)
char *src, *dst;
bcmp(b1, b2, length)
char *b1, *b2;
The functions bcopy, bcmp, and bzero operate on variable length strings of bytes. They do not check for null bytes as the routines in
Bcopy copies length bytes from string src to the string dst.
Bcmp compares byte string b1 against byte string b2, returning zero if they are identical, non-zero otherwise. Both strings are assumed to
be length bytes long.
Bzero places length 0 bytes in the string b1.
Ffs find the first bit set in the argument passed it and returns the index of that bit. Bits are numbered starting at 1. A return value
of 0 indicates the value passed is zero.
The bcopy routine take parameters backwards from strcpy.

Points to the original string for the bcopy() function. Points to the destination string for the bcopy() function. Specifies the byte
string to be compared to the string2 parameter by the bcmp() function. Specifies the byte string to be compared to the string1 parameter
by the bcmp() function. Specifies the length (in bytes) of the string.
The bcopy(), bcmp(), and bzero() functions operate on variable length strings of bytes. Unlike the string functions, they do not check for
The bcopy() function copies the value of the length parameter in bytes from the string in the source parameter to the string in the desti-
The bcmp() function compares the byte string in the string1 parameter against the byte string of the string2 parameter, returning a 0
(zero) value if the two strings are identical and a nonzero value otherwise.
The bzero() function nulls the string in the string parameter, for the value of the length parameter in bytes.
[Tru64 UNIX] The bcopy() function is similar to the memcpy() function except that the first two parameters are reversed.
