NAME
       strcasecmp, strncasecmp - compare two strings ignoring case

SYNOPSIS
       #include <strings.h>

       int strcasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2);

       int strncasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  strcasecmp()  function  compares  the two strings s1 and s2, ignoring the case of the
       characters.  It returns an integer less than, equal to, or greater  than  zero  if  s1  is
       found, respectively, to be less than, to match, or be greater than s2.

       The strncasecmp() function is similar, except it compares the only first n bytes of s1.

RETURN VALUE
       The  strcasecmp()  and  strncasecmp()  functions return an integer less than, equal to, or
       greater than zero if s1 (or the first n bytes thereof) is found, respectively, to be  less
       than, to match, or be greater than s2.

CONFORMING TO
       4.4BSD, POSIX.1-2001.
