curl_strequal, curl_strnequal - case insensitive string comparisons SYNOPSIS
#include <curl/curl.h> int curl_strequal(char *str1, char *str2); int curl_strenqual(char *str1, char *str2, size_t len); DESCRIPTION
The curl_strequal() function compares the two strings str1 and str2, ignoring the case of the characters. It returns a non-zero (TRUE) integer if the strings are identical. The curl_strnequal() function is similar, except it only compares the first len characters of str1. These functions are provided by libcurl to enable applications to compare strings in a truly portable manner. There are no standard porta- ble case insensitive string comparison functions. These two work on all platforms. AVAILABILITY
These functions will be removed from the public libcurl API in a near future. They will instead be made "available" by source code access only, and then as curlx_strequal() and curlx_strenqual(). RETURN VALUE
Non-zero if the strings are identical. Zero if they're not. SEE ALSO

strnatcmp - String comparisons using a ";natural order" algorithm

int strnatcmp (string $str1, string $str2) DESCRIPTION
This function implements a comparison algorithm that orders alphanumeric strings in the way a human being would, this is described as a "natural ordering". Note that this comparison is case sensitive. PARAMETERS
o $str1 - The first string. o $str2 - The second string. RETURN VALUES
Similar to other string comparison functions, this one returns < 0 if $str1 is less than $str2; > 0 if $str1 is greater than $str2, and 0 if they are equal. EXAMPLES
An example of the difference between this algorithm and the regular computer string sorting algorithms (used in strcmp(3)) can be seen below: <?php $arr1 = $arr2 = array("img12.png", "img10.png", "img2.png", "img1.png"); echo "Standard string comparison "; usort($arr1, "strcmp"); print_r($arr1); echo " Natural order string comparison "; usort($arr2, "strnatcmp"); print_r($arr2); ?> The above example will output: Standard string comparison Array ( [0] => img1.png [1] => img10.png [2] => img12.png [3] => img2.png ) Natural order string comparison Array ( [0] => img1.png [1] => img2.png [2] => img10.png [3] => img12.png ) SEE ALSO
