fstrcmp(3)		   Library Functions Manual		    fstrcmp(3)

NAME
       fstrcmp - fuzzy comparison of two strings

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

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

RETURN VALUE
       The  fstrcmp  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.
