NAME

       strcmp, strncmp - compare two strings

SYNOPSIS

       #include <string.h>

       int strcmp(const char *s1, const char *s2);

       int strncmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION

       The  strcmp()  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  strncmp() function is similar, except it only compares the first n
       characters of s1.

RETURN VALUE

       The strcmp() and strncmp() functions return an integer less than, equal
       to, or greater than zero if s1 (or the first n bytes thereof) is found,
       respectively, to be less than, to match, or be greater than s2.
