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

NAME
       strcoll - compare two strings using the current locale

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

       int strcoll(const char *s1, const char *s2);

DESCRIPTION
       The strcoll() function compares the two strings s1 and s2.
       It returns an integer less than, equal to, or greater than
       zero  if  s1  is  found, respectively, to be less than, to
       match, or be greater than s2.  The comparison is based  on
       strings  interpreted as appropriate for the program's cur-
       rent locale for category LC_COLLATE.  (See  setlocale(3)).

RETURN VALUE
       The strcoll() function returns an integer less than, equal
       to, or greater than zero if s1 is found, respectively,  to
       be  less  than, to match, or be greater than s2, when both
       are interpreted as appropriate for the current locale.

NOTES
       In the "POSIX" or "C" locales strcoll() is  equivalent  to
       strcmp().
