curl_strequal (3)

Name

curl_strequal - case insensitive string comparisons

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

int curl_strequal(char *str1, char *str2);

int curl_strnequal(char *str1, char *str2, size_t len);

Description

curl_strequal(3)                libcurl Manual                curl_strequal(3)



NAME
       curl_strequal, curl_strnequal - case insensitive string comparisons

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       int curl_strequal(char *str1, char *str2);

       int curl_strnequal(char *str1, char *str2, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
       The  curl_strequal()  function  compares the two strings str1 and str2,
       ignoring the case of the characters. It returns a non-zero (TRUE) inte-
       ger if the strings are identical.

       The  curl_strnequal()  function is similar, except it only compares the
       first len characters of str1.

       These functions are provided by libcurl to enable applications to  com-
       pare strings in a truly portable manner. There are no standard portable
       case insensitive string comparison functions. These  two  work  on  all
       platforms.

AVAILABILITY
       These  functions  will be removed from the public libcurl API in a near
       future. They will instead be made "available"  by  source  code  access
       only, and then as curlx_strequal() and curlx_strenqual().

RETURN VALUE
       Non-zero if the strings are identical. Zero if they're not.
