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 specification. HISTORY

NAME
bcmp - compare byte sequences SYNOPSIS
#include <strings.h> int bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
The bcmp() function compares the two byte sequences s1 and s2 of length n each. If they are equal, and in particular if n is zero, bcmp() returns 0. Otherwise it returns a nonzero result. RETURN VALUE
The bcmp() function returns 0 if the byte sequences are equal, otherwise a nonzero result is returned. CONFORMING TO
4.3BSD. This function is deprecated (marked as LEGACY in POSIX.1-2001): use memcmp(3) in new programs. POSIX.1-2008 removes the specifi- cation of bcmp(). SEE ALSO
