int wcscmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2);

RETURN VALUE

The wcscmp() function returns zero if the wide-character strings at s1 and s2 are equal. It returns an integer greater than zero if at the first differing position i, the corresponding wide-character s1[i] is greater than s2[i]. It returns an integer less than zero if at the first differing position i, the corresponding wide-character s1[i] is less than s2[i].
