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

NAME         top

       wcsncasecmp - compare two fixed-size wide-character strings, ignoring
       case

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <wchar.h>

       int wcsncasecmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2, size_t n);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       wcsncasecmp():
           Since glibc 2.10:
               _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L
           Before glibc 2.10:
               _GNU_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION         top

       The wcsncasecmp() function is the wide-character equivalent of the
       strncasecmp(3) function.  It compares the wide-character string
       pointed to by s1 and the wide-character string pointed to by s2, but
       at most n wide characters from each string, ignoring case differences
       (towupper(3), towlower(3)).

RETURN VALUE         top

       The wcsncasecmp() function returns zero if the wide-character strings
       at s1 and s2, truncated to at most length n, are equal except for
       case distinctions.  It returns a positive integer if truncated s1 is
       greater than truncated s2, ignoring case.  It returns a negative
       integer if truncated s1 is smaller than truncated s2, ignoring case.

VERSIONS         top

       The wcsncasecmp() function is provided in glibc since version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO         top

       POSIX.1-2008.  This function is not specified in POSIX.1-2001, and is
       not widely available on other systems.

NOTES         top

       The behavior of wcsncasecmp() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of the
       current locale.
