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.

       new programs.  POSIX.1-2008 removes the specification of bcmp().
