fstrcoll(3)		   Library Functions Manual		   fstrcoll(3)

NAME
       fstrcoll	- fuzzy	comparison of two strings using	the current locale

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

DESCRIPTION
       The  strcoll()  function	 compares  the two strings sting1 and string2.
       The comparison is based on strings interpreted as appropriate  for  the
       program's current locale	for category LC_CTYPE.

RETURN VALUE
       The  fstrcoll  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)	or mb-
       stowcs(3) failure.
