BCMP(9)                NetBSD Kernel Developer's Manual                BCMP(9)


NAME
bcmp -- compare byte string
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/systm.h> int bcmp(const void *b1, const void *b2, size_t len);
DESCRIPTION
The bcmp() interface is obsolete. Do not add new code using it. It will soon be purged. Use memcmp(9) instead. (The bcmp() function is now a macro for memcmp(9).) The bcmp() function compares byte string b1 against byte string b2, returning zero if they are identical, non-zero otherwise. Both strings are assumed to be len bytes long. Zero-length strings are always identi- cal. The strings may overlap.
