NAME

       bcmp - compare byte sequences

SYNOPSIS

       #include <strings.h>

       int bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION

       The bcmp() function compares the two byte sequences s1 and s2 of length
       n each.  If they are equal, and in particular  if  n  is  zero,  bcmp()
       returns 0.  Otherwise it returns a nonzero result.

RETURN VALUE

       The  bcmp()  function  returns  0  if  the  byte  sequences  are equal,
       otherwise a nonzero result is returned.

CONFORMING TO

       4.3BSD.   This  function   is   deprecated   (marked   as   LEGACY   in
       POSIX.1-2001): use memcmp(3) in new programs.  POSIX.1-2008 removes the
       specification of bcmp().

SEE ALSO

       strncmp(3)
