NAME
       strcasecmp,  strncasecmp  -  compare  two strings ignoring
       case

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

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

       int strncasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The strcasecmp() function compares the two strings s1  and
       s2,  ignoring  the  case of the characters.  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 strncasecmp() function is similar, except it only com-
       pares the first n characters of s1.

RETURN VALUE
       The  strcasecmp()  and  strncasecmp()  functions return an
       integer less than, equal to, or greater than  zero  if  s1
       (or  the first n bytes thereof) is found, respectively, to
       be less than, to match, or be greater than s2.
