bcmp  compare byte sequences
SYNOPSIS
#include
int bcmp(const void *s1, const void *s2, size_t n);

n each. If they are equal, and in particular if n is zero, bcmp()
returns 0. Otherwise it returns a nonzero result.
RETURN VALUE
The bcmp() function returns 0 if the byte sequences are equal, other
wise a nonzero result is returned.
