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.

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().
