BSTRING(3)               BSD Library Functions Manual               BSTRING(3)

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

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

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

     void
     bcopy(const void *src, void *dst, size_t len);

     void
     bzero(void *b, size_t len);

     void *
     memchr(const void *b, int c, size_t len);

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

     void *
     memccpy(void *dst, const void *src, int c, size_t len);

     void *
     memcpy(void *dst, const void *src, size_t len);

     void *
     memmove(void *dst, const void *src, size_t len);

     void *
     memset(void *b, int c, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions operate on variable length strings of bytes.  They do not
     check for terminating null bytes as the routines listed in string(3) do.

     See the specific manual pages for more information.

SEE ALSO
     bcmp(3), bcopy(3), bzero(3), memccpy(3), memchr(3), memcmp(3), memcpy(3),
     memmove(3), memset(3)

STANDARDS
     The functions memchr(), memcmp(), memcpy(), memmove(), and memset() con-
     form to ANSI X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C89'').

HISTORY
     The functions bzero() and memccpy() appeared in 4.3BSD; the functions
     bcmp(), bcopy(), appeared in 4.2BSD.
