RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for strcmp (redhat section 3)

STRCMP(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual				STRCMP(3)

NAME
       strcmp, strncmp - compare two strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

       int strcmp(const char *s1, const char *s2);

       int strncmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  strcmp()  function	compares  the  two strings s1 and s2.  It returns an integer less
       than, equal to, or greater than zero if s1 is found, respectively, to  be  less	than,  to
       match, or be greater than s2.

       The  strncmp()  function is similar, except it only compares the first (at most) n charac-
       ters of s1 and s2.

RETURN VALUE
       The strcmp() and strncmp() functions return an integer less than,  equal  to,  or  greater
       than zero if s1 (or the first n bytes thereof) is found, respectively, to be less than, to
       match, or be greater than s2.
