BCMP(3)			 BSD Library Functions Manual		       BCMP(3)

NAME
     bcmp — compare byte string

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <strings.h>

     int
     bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
     The bcmp() function compares byte string s1 against byte string s2,
     returning zero if they are identical, non-zero otherwise.	Both strings
     are assumed to be n bytes long.  Zero-length strings are always identi‐
     cal.

     The strings may overlap.

SEE ALSO
     memcmp(3), strcasecmp(3), strcmp(3), strcoll(3), strxfrm(3)

HISTORY
     A bcmp() function first appeared in 4.2BSD.  Its prototype existed previ‐
     ously in <string.h> before it was moved to <strings.h> for IEEE Std
     1003.1-2001 (“POSIX.1”) compliance.
