wcscasecmp - compare two wide-character strings, ignoring case
int wcscasecmp(const wchar_t *s1, const wchar_t *s2);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
- Since glibc 2.10:
- _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L
- Before glibc 2.10:
The wcscasecmp() function is the wide-character equivalent of the
strcasecmp(3) function. It compares the wide-character string pointed
to by s1 and the wide-character string pointed to by s2,
ignoring case differences (towupper(3), towlower(3)).
The wcscasecmp() function returns zero if the wide-character strings at
s1 and s2 are equal except for case distinctions. It returns a
positive integer if s1 is greater than s2, ignoring case. It
returns a negative integer if s1 is smaller than s2, ignoring
The wcscasecmp() 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 wcscasecmp() depends on the LC_CTYPE category of
the current locale.
