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

NAME         top

       wcscmp - compare two wide-character strings

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <wchar.h>

       int wcscmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The wcscmp() function is the wide-character equivalent of the
       strcmp(3) function.  It compares the wide-character string
       pointed to by s1 and the wide-character string pointed to by s2.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The wcscmp() function returns zero if the wide-character strings
       at s1 and s2 are equal.  It returns an integer greater than zero
       if at the first differing position i, the corresponding wide-
       character s1[i] is greater than s2[i].  It returns an integer
       less than zero if at the first differing position i, the
       corresponding wide-character s1[i] is less than s2[i].
