NAME         top

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

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <string.h>

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

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

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

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

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

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