NAME         top

       gnutls_memcmp - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

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

ARGUMENTS         top

       const void * s1
                   the first address to compare

       const void * s2
                   the second address to compare

       size_t n    the size of memory to compare

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will operate similarly to memcmp(), but will operate on
       time that depends only on the size of the string. That is will not
       return early if the strings don't match on the first byte.

RETURNS         top

       non zero on difference and zero if the buffers are identical.
