strncmp

Synopsis

int strncmp(string one, string two, int length)

Compares two strings; returns a number less than 0 if one is less than two, 0 if the two strings are equal, and a number greater than 0 if one is greater than two. The comparison is case-sensitive—that is, “Alphabet” and “alphabet” are not considered equal. If specified, no more than length characters are compared. If either string is shorter than length characters, the length of that string determines how many characters are compared.
