wcsncasecmp - compare two fixed-size wide-character strings, ignoring case
int wcsncasecmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2, size_t n);
The wcsncasecmp() function is the wide-character equivalent of the strncasecmp(3) func-
tion. 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, ignoring case
differences (towupper(3), towlower(3)).
The wcsncasecmp() function returns zero if the wide-character strings at s1 and s2, trun-
cated to at most length n, are equal except for case distinctions. It returns a positive
integer if truncated s1 is greater than truncated s2, ignoring case. It returns a nega-
tive integer if truncated s1 is smaller than truncated s2, ignoring case.
POSIX.1-2008. This function is not specified in POSIX.1-2001, and is not widely available
on other systems.
The behavior of wcsncasecmp() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the current locale.
