wcsncmp - compare part of two wide-character strings SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> int wcsncmp(const wchar_t *ws1, const wchar_t *ws2, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
The wcsncmp() function shall compare not more than n wide-character codes (wide-character codes that follow a null wide-character code are not compared) from the array pointed to by ws1 to the array pointed to by ws2. The sign of a non-zero return value shall be determined by the sign of the difference between the values of the first pair of wide-charac- ter codes that differ in the objects being compared. RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, wcsncmp() shall return an integer greater than, equal to, or less than 0, if the possibly null-terminated array pointed to by ws1 is greater than, equal to, or less than the possibly null-terminated array pointed to by ws2, respectively. ERRORS

wmemcmp - compare wide characters in memory SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> int wmemcmp(const wchar_t *ws1, const wchar_t *ws2, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
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 equal. RETURN VALUE
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. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
