NAME
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 works on all platforms.
RETURN VALUE
Non-zero if the strings are identical. Zero if they're not.
