NAMEwcscmp - compare two wide-character strings
#include <wchar.h> int wcscmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2);
DESCRIPTIONThe wcscmp() function is the wide-character equivalent of the strcmp(3) function. It compares the wide-character string pointed to by s1 and the wide-character string pointed to by s2.
RETURN VALUEThe wcscmp() function returns zero if the wide-character strings at s1 and s2 are equal. It returns an integer greater than zero if at the first differing position i, the corresponding wide-character s1[i] is greater than s2[i]. It returns an integer less than zero if at the first differing position i, the corresponding wide-character s1[i] is less than s2[i].
