NAME

wcsncmp - compare two fixed-size wide-character strings  

SYNOPSIS

#include <wchar.h>int wcsncmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2, size_t n);
 

DESCRIPTION

The wcsncmp() function is the wide-character equivalent of the strncmp(3) function. It compares the wide-character string pointed to by s1and the wide-character string pointed to by s2, but at most nwide characters from each string. In each string, the comparison extends only up to the first occurrence of a null wide character (Laq\0aq), if any.  

RETURN VALUE

The wcsncmp() function returns zero if the wide-character strings at s1and s2, truncated to at most length n, are equal. It returns an integer greater than zero if at the first differing position i(i< n), 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(i < n), the corresponding wide-character s1[i]is less than s2[i].
