wmemcmp - compare wide characters in memory
int wmemcmp(const wchar_t *ws1, const wchar_t *ws2, size_t n);
The wmemcmp() function shall compare the first n wide characters of the object pointed to by ws1 to the first n wide characters of the
object pointed to by ws2. This function shall not be affected by locale and all wchar_t values shall be treated identically. The null wide
character and wchar_t values not corresponding to valid characters shall not be treated specially.
If n is zero, the application shall ensure that ws1 and ws2 are valid pointers, and the function shall behave as if the two objects compare
The wmemcmp() function shall return an integer greater than, equal to, or less than zero, respectively, as the object pointed to by ws1 is
greater than, equal to, or less than the object pointed to by ws2.
No errors are defined.
