NAME
       bcmp - compare byte sequences

SYNOPSIS
       #include <strings.h>

       int bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  bcmp()  function compares the two byte sequences s1 and s2 of length n each.  If they
       are equal, and in particular if n is zero, bcmp()  returns  0.	Otherwise  it  returns	a
       nonzero result.

RETURN VALUE
       The  bcmp() function returns 0 if the byte sequences are equal, otherwise a nonzero result
       is returned.

CONFORMING TO
       4.3BSD.	This function is deprecated (marked as LEGACY in POSIX.1-2001): use memcmp(3)  in
       new programs.  POSIX.1-2008 removes the specification of bcmp().

SEE ALSO
       memcmp(3), strcasecmp(3), strcmp(3), strcoll(3), strncasecmp(3), strncmp(3)
