strncmp

Syntax:

    #include <cstring>
    int strncmp( const char *str1, const char *str2, size_t count );

The strncmp() function compares at most count characters of str1 and str2. The return value is as follows:

Return value Explanation
less than 0 str1 is less than str2
equal to 0 str1 is equal to str2
greater than 0 str1 is greater than str2

If there are less than count characters in either string, then the comparison will stop after the first null termination is encountered.
