NAME
       fstrcasecmp - fuzzy comparison of two strings ignoring case

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<fstrcmp.h>
       #define FSTRCMP_IDENTICAL
       #define FSTRCMP_THRESHOLD
       #define FSTRCMP_ERROR
       double fstrcasecmp(const	char *string1, const char *string2);

DESCRIPTION
       The  fstrcmp()  function	compares the two strings, string1 and string2,
       ignoring	case.

RETURN VALUE
       The fstrcasecmp function	returns	a floating point value between 0.0 and
       FSTRCMP_IDENTICAL.   A  value  of 0.0 means the strings are utterly un-
       alike.  A value of FSTRCMP_IDENTICAL means the strings  are  identical.
       A  value	 of more than FSTRCMP_THRESHOLD	(it lies between 0.0 and FSTR-
       CMP_IDENTICAL) would be considered "similar" by most people.

       A value of FSTRCMP_ERROR	(always	negative) indicates a malloc(3)	 fail-
       ure.
