NAME

fstrcasecmpi - fuzzy comparison of two strings ignoring case  

SYNOPSIS

#include <fstrcmp.h>

#define FSTRCMP_IDENTICAL
#define FSTRCMP_THRESHOLD
#define FSTRCMP_ERROR

int fstrcasecmpi(const char *string1, const char *string2);  

DESCRIPTION

The fstrcmp() function compares the two strings, string1 and string2, ignoring case.  

RETURN VALUE

The fstrcasecmpi function returns an int value between 0 and FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL. A value of 0 means the strings are utterly un-alike. A value of FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL means the strings are identical. A value of more than FSTRCMPI_THRESHOLD (it lies between 0 and FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL) would be considered "similar" by most people.

A value of FSTRCMPI_ERROR (always negative) indicates a malloc(3) failure.
