    alphabetize string compare function

    Before I go through the trouble of creating a function which would do this, is there a function in <string.h> which would do this for me? It'd save me a lot of trouble. And I don't have my C: TCR right now, nor help files, so if anyone knows offhand it'd be appreciated.

    I think you would have to write your own...it wouldn't be that hard though. Happy Coding

    strcmp() compares two strings

    #include <string.h>
    int strcmp( const char *str1, const char *str2 );



    The function strcmp() compares str1 and str2, then returns:

    Return value Explanation
    less than 0 str1 is less than str2
    equal to 0 str1 is equal to str2
    greater than 0 str1 is greater than str2

    All this is from http://www.cppreference.com/
