NAME
bcmp, bcopy, bzero, memccpy, memchr, memcmp, memcpy, memmove, memset -- byte string operations LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <string.h> int bcmp(const void *b1, const void *b2, size_t len); void bcopy(const void *src, void *dst, size_t len); void bzero(void *b, size_t len); void * memchr(const void *b, int c, size_t len); int memcmp(const void *b1, const void *b2, size_t len); void * memccpy(void *dst, const void *src, int c, size_t len); void * memcpy(void *dst, const void *src, size_t len); void * memmove(void *dst, const void *src, size_t len); void * memset(void *b, int c, size_t len); DESCRIPTION
These functions operate on variable length strings of bytes. They do not check for terminating null bytes as the routines listed in string(3) do. See the specific manual pages for more information. SEE ALSO
bcmp(3), bcopy(3), bzero(3), memccpy(3), memchr(3), memcmp(3), memcpy(3), memmove(3), memset(3) STANDARDS
The functions memchr(), memcmp(), memcpy(), memmove(), and memset() conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C90''). HISTORY
The functions bzero() and memccpy() appeared in 4.3BSD; the functions bcmp(), bcopy(), appeared in 4.2BSD. BSD
June 4, 1993 BSD

NAME
bcmp, bcopy, bzero, memccpy, memchr, memcmp, memcpy, memfrob, memmem, memmove, memset - byte string operations SYNOPSIS
#include <string.h> int bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, int n); void bcopy(const void *src, void *dest, int n); void bzero(void *s, int n); void *memccpy(void *dest, const void *src, int c, size_t n); void *memchr(const void *s, int c, size_t n); int memcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n); void *memcpy(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n); void *memfrob(void *s, size_t n); void *memmem(const void *needle, size_t needlelen, const void *haystack, size_t haystacklen); void *memmove(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n); void *memset(void *s, int c, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
The byte string functions perform operations on strings (byte arrays) that are not necessarily null-terminated. See the individual man pages for descriptions of each function. NOTES
The functions bcmp(), bcopy() and bzero() are obsolete. Use memcmp(), memcpy() and memset() instead. SEE ALSO
