MEMORY(3) C LIBRARY FUNCTIONS MEMORY(3) NAME memory, memccpy, memchr, memcmp, memcpy, memset - memory operations SYNOPSIS #include <memory.h> ... others omitted ... int memcmp(s1, s2, n) char *s1, *s2; int n; DESCRIPTION These functions operate as efficiently as possible on memory areas (arrays of characters bounded by a count, not ter- minated by a null character). They do not check for the overflow of any receiving memory area. memcmp() compares its arguments, looking at the first n characters only, and returns an integer less than, equal to, or greater than 0, according as s1 is lexicographically less than, equal to, or greater than s2. See full man page for other descriptions. NOTES For user convenience, all these functions are declared in the <memory.h> header file.
