strcoll(3)               BSD Library Functions Manual               strcoll(3)


NAME

     strcoll, strcoll_l -- compare strings, according to current collation


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <string.h>

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

     #include <string.h>
     #include <xlocale.h>

     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, according as s1 is
     greater than, equal to, or less than s2.  If information about the cur-
     rent locale collation is not available, the value of strcmp(s1, s2) is
     returned.

     Although the strcoll() function uses the current locale, the strcoll_l()
     function may be passed a locale directly. See xlocale(3) for more infor-
     mation.
