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

NAME
       bcmp - compare byte strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

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

DESCRIPTION
       The  bcmp()  function  compares  the  first n bytes of the
       strings s1 and s2.  If the two strings are  equal,  bcmp()
       returns  0,  otherwise it returns a non-zero result.  If n
       is zero, the two strings are assumed to be equal.

RETURN VALUE
       The bcmp() function returns 0 if the  strings  are  equal,
       otherwise a non-zero result is returned.

CONFORMING TO
       4.3BSD.   This function is deprecated -- use memcmp in new
       programs.
