NAME

strcmp() - determines the lexical relationship between two strings.

SYNOPSIS

int strcmp( string one, string two );

DESCRIPTION

This  implementatin  of  strcmp()  is  identical  to the one found in C
libraries.  If string one lexically precedes string two, then  strcmp()
returns  a number less than 0.  If the two strings have the same value,
strcmp() returns 0.  If string two lexically precedes string one,  then
strcmp()  returns  a number greater than 0.  This efunction is particuā€
larly useful in the compare functions needed by sort_array(3).
