PROLOGThis manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
NAMEstrcasecmp, strncasecmp - case-insensitive string comparisons
DESCRIPTIONThe strcasecmp() function shall compare, while ignoring differences in case, the string pointed to by s1 to the string pointed to by s2. The strncasecmp() function shall compare, while ignoring differences in case, not more than n bytes from the string pointed to by s1 to the string pointed to by s2.
In the POSIX locale, strcasecmp() and strncasecmp() shall behave as if the strings had been converted to lowercase and then a byte comparison performed. The results are unspecified in other locales.
RETURN VALUEUpon completion, strcasecmp() shall return an integer greater than, equal to, or less than 0, if the string pointed to by s1 is, ignoring case, greater than, equal to, or less than the string pointed to by s2, respectively.
Upon successful completion, strncasecmp() shall return an integer greater than, equal to, or less than 0, if the possibly null-terminated array pointed to by s1 is, ignoring case, greater than, equal to, or less than the possibly null-terminated array pointed to by s2, respectively.
ERRORSNo errors are defined.
