STRCOLL(3)	      DragonFly Library Functions Manual	    STRCOLL(3)

NAME

strcoll -- compare strings according to current collation

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <string.h> int strcoll(const char *s1, const char *s2); int strcoll_l(const char *s1, const char *s2, locale_t locale);

DESCRIPTION

The strcoll() function lexicographically compares the null-terminated strings s1 and s2 according to the current locale collation and returns an integer greater than, equal to, or less than 0, depending on whether s1 is greater than, equal to, or less than s2. If information about the current locale collation is not available, the value of strcmp(s1, s2) is returned. The strcoll_l() function uses an explicit locale argument rather than the system locale.
