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


Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


#include <string.h> int bcmp(const void *b1, const void *b2, size_t len); void bcopy(const void *src, void *dst, size_t len); void bzero(void *b, size_t len); void * memchr(const void *b, int c, size_t len); int memcmp(const void *b1, const void *b2, size_t len); void * memccpy(void * restrict dst, const void * restrict src, int c, size_t len); void * memcpy(void * restrict dst, const void * restrict src, size_t len); void * memmove(void *dst, const void *src, size_t len); void * memset(void *b, int c, size_t len);


These functions operate on variable length strings of bytes. They do not check for terminating null bytes as the routines listed in string(3) do. See the specific manual pages for more information.


bcmp(3), bcopy(3), bzero(3), memccpy(3), memchr(3), memcmp(3), memcpy(3), memmove(3), memset(3)


The functions memchr(), memcmp(), memcpy(), memmove(), and memset() conform to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C90'').


The functions bzero() and memccpy() appeared in 4.3BSD; the functions bcmp(), bcopy(), appeared in 4.2BSD. DragonFly 5.1 February 22, 2018 DragonFly 5.1
