NAME
       strcmp, strncmp - compare two strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<string.h>

       int strcmp(const	char *s1, const	char *s2);

       int strncmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  strcmp()  function compares	the two	strings	s1 and s2.  It returns
       an integer less than, equal to, or greater than zero if	s1  is	found,
       respectively, to	be less	than, to match,	or be greater than s2.

       The  strncmp()  function	 is similar, except it only compares the first
       (at most) n characters of s1 and	s2.

RETURN VALUE
       The strcmp() and	strncmp() functions return an integer less than, equal
       to, or greater than zero	if s1 (or the first n bytes thereof) is	found,
       respectively, to	be less	than, to match,	or be greater than s2.
