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

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

NAME
       wcsncmp - compare two fixed-size wide-character strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       int wcsncmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The wcsncmp function is the wide-character equivalent of the strncmp function. It compares
       the wide-character string pointed to by s1 and the wide-character string pointed to by s2,
       but  at	most  n  wide characters from each string. In each string, the comparison extends
       only up to the first occurrence of a L'\0' character, if any.

RETURN VALUE
       The wcsncmp function returns zero if the wide-character strings at s1 and s2, truncated to
       at most length n, are equal.  It returns an integer greater than zero if at the first dif-
       fering position i (i < n), the corresponding wide-character s1[i] is greater  than  s2[i].
       It  returns  an	integer  less than zero if at the first differing position i (i < n), the
       corresponding wide-character s1[i] is less than s2[i].
