bcmp - compare byte sequences
int bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n);
The bcmp() function compares the two byte sequences s1 and
s2 of length n each. If they are equal, and in particular if
n is zero, bcmp() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns a nonzero
The bcmp() function returns 0 if the byte sequences are equal, otherwise
