NAME
       strcasecmp - compare strings, ignoring case

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

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

       int
       strncasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
       Strcasecmp  and	strncasecmp compare the null-terminated strings s1 and
       s2 and return an integer greater	 than,	equal  to,  or	less  than  0,
       according  as  s1  is lexicographically greater than, equal to, or less
       than s2 after translation of each  corresponding	 character  to	lower-
       case.  The strings themselves are not modified.	The comparison is done
       using unsigned characters, so that '\200' is greater than '\0'.

       Strncasecmp compares at most len characters.
