STRCOLL(3)             FreeBSD Library Functions Manual             STRCOLL(3)

NAME
     strcoll - compare strings according to current collation

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <string.h>

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

     int
     strcoll_l(const char *s1, const char *s2, locale_t loc);

DESCRIPTION
     The strcoll() function lexicographically compares the null-terminated
     strings s1 and s2 according to the current locale collation and returns
     an integer greater than, equal to, or less than 0, depending on whether
     s1 is greater than, equal to, or less than s2.  If information about the
     current locale collation is not available, the value of strcmp(s1, s2) is
     returned.  The strcoll_l() function uses an explicit locale argument
     rather than the system locale.

SEE ALSO
     setlocale(3), strcmp(3), strxfrm(3), wcscoll(3)

STANDARDS
     The strcoll() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C90'').  The
     strcoll_l() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1'').
