STRCOLL(3)               BSD Library Functions Manual               STRCOLL(3)

     strcoll, strcoll_l -- compare strings, according to current collation

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

     #include <string.h>

     strcoll(const char *s1, const char *s2);

     #include <string.h>
     #include <xlocale.h>

     strcoll_l(const char *s1, const char *s2, locale_t loc);

     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, according
     as 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.

     Although the strcoll() function uses the current locale, the strcoll_l() function may be passed a
     locale directly. See xlocale(3) for more information.

     setlocale(3), strcmp(3), strxfrm(3), wcscoll(3), xlocale(3)

     The strcoll() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (``ISO C90'').
