Description:

The strcoll() function compares the strings pointed to by s1 and s2, using the collating sequence selected by the setlocale() function.

The strcoll() function is equivalent to strcmp() when the collating sequence is selected from the "C" locale.

Returns:

< 0
s1 is less than s2.
0
s1 is equal to s2.
> 0
s1 is greater than s2.

Examples:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

char buffer[80] = "world";

int main( void )
{
    if( strcoll( buffer, "Hello" ) < 0 ) {
        printf( "Less than\n" );
    }

    return EXIT_SUCCESS;
}
