wcsncasecmp  -  compare two fixed-size wide-character strings, ignoring


   #include <wchar.h>

   int wcsncasecmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2, size_t n);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       Since glibc 2.10:
           _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L
       Before glibc 2.10:


   The wcsncasecmp() function is  the  wide-character  equivalent  of  the
   strncasecmp(3) function.  It compares the wide-character string pointed
   to by s1 and the wide-character string pointed to by s2, but at most  n
   wide   characters   from   each   string,   ignoring  case  differences
   (towupper(3), towlower(3)).


   The wcsncasecmp() function returns zero if the  wide-character  strings
   at  s1 and s2, truncated to at most length n, are equal except for case
   distinctions.  It returns a positive integer if truncated s1 is greater
   than  truncated  s2,  ignoring  case.  It returns a negative integer if
   truncated s1 is smaller than truncated s2, ignoring case.


   The wcsncasecmp() function is provided in glibc since version 2.1.

   POSIX.1-2008.   This  function is not specified in POSIX.1-2001, and is
   not widely available on other systems.


   The behavior of wcsncasecmp() depends on the LC_CTYPE category  of  the
   current locale.
