NAME

fstrcmpi - fuzzy comparison of two strings

SYNOPSIS

#include <fstrcmp.h> #define FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL #define FSTRCMPI_THRESHOLD #define FSTRCMPI_ERROR int fstrcmpi(const char *string1, const char *string2);

DESCRIPTION

The fstrcmpi() function compares the two strings, string1 and string2.

RETURN VALUE

The fstrcmpi function returns an int value between 0 and FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL. A value of 0 means the strings are utterly un-alike. A value of FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL means the strings are identical. A value of more than FSTRCMPI_THRESHOLD (it lies between 0 and FSTR‐ CMPI_IDENTICAL) would be considered "similar" by most people. A value of FSTRCMPI_ERROR (always negative) indicates a malloc(3) failure.
