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



NAME
       bcmp - compare byte sequences

SYNOPSIS
       #include <strings.h>

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

DESCRIPTION
       The  bcmp()  function compares the two byte sequences s1 and s2 of length n each.  If they
       are equal, and in particular if n is zero, bcmp() returns  0.   Otherwise,  it  returns  a
       nonzero result.

RETURN VALUE
       The  bcmp() function returns 0 if the byte sequences are equal, otherwise a nonzero result
       is returned.

ATTRIBUTES
   Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
       The bcmp() function is thread-safe.

CONFORMING TO
       4.3BSD.  This function is deprecated (marked as LEGACY in POSIX.1-2001): use memcmp(3)  in
       new programs.  POSIX.1-2008 removes the specification of bcmp().

SEE ALSO
       memcmp(3), strcasecmp(3), strcmp(3), strcoll(3), strncasecmp(3), strncmp(3)
