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.

CONFORMING TO

       SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89, C99.

NOTES

       In the "POSIX" or "C" locales strcoll() is equivalent to strcmp(3).
