Strcoll() - String Manipulation Function

How to compare strings C++?


strcoll() is used to compare str1 with str2. This comparison is done with the locale settings specified using the setlocale() function. The function returns an integer value.


int * strcoll ( const char * str1, const char * str2 );

The following table lists the possible meanings for the value returned by "strcoll()"

Example :

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
int main ()
char str1[]="zscripts";
char str2[]="ramya";
if (strcoll(str1,str2)<0)
printf("str1 is less than str2\n.");
else if (strcoll(str1,str2)>0)
printf("str1 is greater than str2\n.");
printf("str1is equal to str2\n");
return 0;

Result :

str1 is greater than str2

In the above example, this manipulation function is usued to compare two strings "zscripts" and "ramya".
