BCMP(P) 						     POSIX Programmer's Manual							   BCMP(P)

NAME
bcmp - memory operations (LEGACY) SYNOPSIS
#include <strings.h> int bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
The bcmp() function shall compare the first n bytes of the area pointed to by s1 with the area pointed to by s2. RETURN VALUE
The bcmp() function shall return 0 if s1 and s2 are identical; otherwise, it shall return non-zero. Both areas are assumed to be n bytes long. If the value of n is 0, bcmp() shall return 0. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
The memcmp() function is preferred over this function. For maximum portability, it is recommended to replace the function call to bcmp() as follows: #define bcmp(b1,b2,len) memcmp((b1), (b2), (size_t)(len)) RATIONALE
None. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
This function may be withdrawn in a future version. SEE ALSO
