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 current 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.
