BSTRING(3)                 Linux Programmer's Manual                BSTRING(3)



NAME
       bcmp,  bcopy,  bzero, memccpy, memchr, memcmp, memcpy, memfrob, memmem,
       memmove, memset - byte string operations

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

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

       void bcopy(const void *src, void *dest, int n);

       void bzero(void *s, int n);

       void *memccpy(void *dest, const void *src, int c, size_t n);

       void *memchr(const void *s, int c, size_t n);

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

       void *memcpy(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n);

       void *memfrob(void *s, size_t n);

       void *memmem(const void *needle, size_t needlelen,
                    const void *haystack, size_t haystacklen);

       void *memmove(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n);

       void *memset(void *s, int c, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The byte string functions perform operations on strings  (byte  arrays)
       that are not necessarily null-terminated.  See the individual man pages
       for descriptions of each function.

NOTES
       The functions bcmp(), bcopy() and bzero() are obsolete.  Use  memcmp(),
       memcpy() and memset() instead.
