NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for bcmp (netbsd section 3)

BCMP(3) 			   BSD Library Functions Manual 			  BCMP(3)

NAME
     bcmp -- compare byte string

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <strings.h>

     int
     bcmp(const void *b1, const void *b2, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     The bcmp() function compares byte string b1 against byte string b2, returning zero if they
     are identical, non-zero otherwise.  Both strings are assumed to be len bytes long.  Zero-
     length strings are always identical.

     The strings may overlap.

SEE ALSO
     memcmp(3), strcasecmp(3), strcmp(3), strcoll(3), strxfrm(3)

STANDARDS
     The bcmp() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').  The IEEE Std
     1003.1-2004 (``POSIX.1'') revision marked it as legacy and recommended the use of memcmp(3)
     instead.  The IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1'') revision removed bcmp() from the specifica-
     tion.

HISTORY
     A bcmp() function first appeared in 4.2BSD.
