NAME bcmp, bcopy, bzero, memccpy, memchr, memcmp, memcpy, memfrob, memmem, memmove, memset - byte string operations
SYNOPSIS #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 *needle, size_t needlelen, const void *haystack, size_t haystacklen); void *memmove(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n); void *memset(void *s, int c, size_t n);
DESCRIPTION The byte string functions perform operations on strings (byte arrays) that are not neces‐ sarily null-terminated. See the individual man pages for descriptions of each function.
NOTES The functions bcmp(), bcopy() and bzero() are obsolete. Use memcmp(), memcpy() and mem‐ set() instead.
