wcscoll: wide-character string comparison using collating information

NAME
wcscoll - wide-character string comparison using collating information

SYNOPSIS

#include <wchar.h> int wcscoll(const wchar_t *ws1, const wchar_t *ws2);

DESCRIPTION

The wcscoll() function shall compare the wide-character string pointed to by ws1 to the wide-character string pointed to by ws2, both interpreted as appropriate to the LC_COLLATE category of the current locale. The wcscoll() function shall not change the setting of errno if successful. An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to 0 before calling wcscoll(). If errno is non-zero on return, an error has occurred.

RETURN VALUE

Upon successful completion, wcscoll() shall return an integer greater than, equal to, or less than 0, according to whether the wide-character string pointed to by ws1 is greater than, equal to, or less than the wide-character string pointed to by ws2, when both are interpreted as appropriate to the current locale. On error, wcscoll() shall set errno, but no return value is reserved to indicate an error.

ERRORS

The wcscoll() function may fail if: EINVAL The ws1 or ws2 arguments contain wide-character codes outside the domain of the collating sequence. The following sections are informative.
EXAMPLES
None.
APPLICATION USAGE
The wcsxfrm() and wcscmp() functions should be used for sorting large lists.

RATIONALE

None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS

None.
