BCMP(9)                  BSD Kernel Developer's Manual                 BCMP(9)

NAME
     bcmp -- compare byte string

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;sys/systm.h>&gt;

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

DESCRIPTION
     The bcmp() interface is obsolete.  Do not add new code using it.  It will
     soon be purged.  Use memcmp(9) instead.  (The bcmp() function is now a
     macro for memcmp(9).)

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

     The strings may overlap.
