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, other-
     wise a nonzero result is returned.
