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 non-zero result.

RETURN VALUE The bcmp() function returns 0 if the byte sequences are equal, other- wise a non-zero result is returned.

CONFORMING TO 4.3BSD. This function is deprecated (marked as LEGACY in POSIX.1-2001): use memcmp() in new programs.
