strncasecmp --  Binary safe case-insensitive string comparison of the first n characters


int strncasecmp ( string str1, string str2, int len )

This function is similar to strcasecmp(), with the difference that you can specify the (upper limit of the) number of characters (len) from each string to be used in the comparison.

Returns < 0 if str1 is less than str2; > 0 if str1 is greater than str2, and 0 if they are equal.

See also preg_match(), strcasecmp(), strcmp(), substr(), stristr(), and strstr().
