NAMEbcmp — compare byte string
LIBRARYStandard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS#include < strings.h>
bcmp( const void *b1, const void *b2, size_t len);
DESCRIPTIONThe bcmp() function compares byte string b1 against byte string b2, returning zero if they are identical, non-zero otherwise. Both strings are assumed to be len bytes long. Zero-length strings are always identical.
The strings may overlap.
HISTORYA bcmp() function first appeared in 4.2BSD. Its prototype existed previously in < string.h> before it was moved to < strings.h> for IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (“POSIX.1”) compliance.
