BSTRING(3) Library Functions Manual BSTRING(3)

bcmp, bcopy, bzero, memccpy, memchr, memcmp, memcpy, memfrob, memmem, memmove, memset - byte string operations

Standard C library (libc, -lc)

#include <string.h>
int bcmp(const void s1[.n], const void s2[.n], size_t n);
void bcopy(const void src[.n], void dest[.n], size_t n);
void bzero(void s[.n], size_t n);
void *memccpy(void dest[.n], const void src[.n], int c, size_t n);
void *memchr(const void s[.n], int c, size_t n);
int memcmp(const void s1[.n], const void s2[.n], size_t n);
void *memcpy(void dest[.n], const void src[.n], size_t n);
void *memfrob(void s[.n], size_t n);
void *memmem(const void haystack[.haystacklen], size_t haystacklen,
             const void needle[.needlelen], size_t needlelen);
void *memmove(void dest[.n], const void src[.n], size_t n);
void *memset(void s[.n], int c, size_t n);

The byte string functions perform operations on strings (byte arrays) that are not necessarily null-terminated. See the individual man pages for descriptions of each function.

The functions bcmp(), bcopy(), and bzero() are obsolete. Use memcmp(), memcpy(), and memset() instead.
