BCMP(3)                     BSD Programmer's Manual                    BCMP(3)

NAME
     bcmp - compare byte string

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;string.h>&gt;

     int
     bcmp(const void *b1, const void *b2, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     The bcmp() function compares byte string b1 against byte string b2, re-
     turning zero if they are identical, non-zero otherwise.  Both strings are
     assumed to be len bytes long.  Zero-length strings are always identical.

     The strings may overlap.
