STRCOLL(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			       STRCOLL(3)

NAME
       strcoll - compare two strings using the current locale

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

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

DESCRIPTION
       The  strcoll()  function  compares  the two strings s1 and s2.  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 comparison is based on strings interpreted as appropri-
       ate for the program's current locale for category LC_COLLATE.  (See setlocale(3).)

RETURN VALUE
       The strcoll() function 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, when both are
       interpreted as appropriate for the current locale.

CONFORMING TO
       SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89, C99.

NOTES
       In the POSIX or C locales strcoll() is equivalent to strcmp(3).
