/* memcmp -- compare two memory regions.
   This function is in the public domain.  */

/*

@deftypefn Supplemental int memcmp (const void *@var{x}, const void *@var{y}, size_t @var{count})

Compares the first @var{count} bytes of two areas of memory.  Returns
zero if they are the same, a value less than zero if @var{x} is
lexically less than @var{y}, or a value greater than zero if @var{x}
is lexically greater than @var{y}.  Note that lexical order is determined
as if comparing unsigned char arrays.
