NAME bcmp - compare byte sequences
SYNOPSIS #include <strings.h> int bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n);
DESCRIPTION The bcmp() function compares the two byte sequences s1 and s2 of length n each. If they are equal, and in particular if n is zero, bcmp() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns a nonzero result.
RETURN VALUE The bcmp() function returns 0 if the byte sequences are equal, otherwise a nonzero result is returned.
