BCMP(9) 			  BSD Kernel Developer's Manual 			  BCMP(9)

NAME
     bcmp -- compare byte string

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/systm.h>

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

DESCRIPTION
     The bcmp() interface is obsolete.	Do not add new code using it.  It will soon be purged.
     Use memcmp(9) instead.  (The bcmp() function is now a macro for memcmp(9).)

     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.
