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 par-
       ticular if n is zero, bcmp() returns 0.  Otherwise it returns a non-zero result.

RETURN VALUE
       The bcmp() function returns 0 if the byte sequences are equal, otherwise a non-zero 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().
