Defines: strcmp()

strcmp(s, t) returns > 0, = 0, or < 0 when s > t, s = t, or s < t
according to the ordinary lexicographical order. To test for
equality, the macro streql(s,t) is clearer than !strcmp(s,t). Note
that if the string contains characters outside the range 0..127 the
result is machine-dependent; PDP-11s and VAXen use signed bytes,
some other machines use unsigned bytes.

#include "strings.h"

int strcmp(s, t)
register char *s, *t;
while (*s == *t++) if (!*s++) return 0;
return s[0]-t[-1];

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
