C Language: strcmp function. (String Compare) In the C Programming Language, the strcmp function returns a negative, zero, or positive integer depending on whether the object pointed to by s1 is less than, equal to, or greater than the object pointed to by s2.
In respect to this, can we compare two strings using == in C?
You can't compare strings in C with ==, because the C compiler does not really have a clue about strings beyond a string-literal. In C because, in most contexts, an array "decays into a pointer to its first element". Because there is no such thing as a C string.
Beside above, what is the difference between Strcmp and Strncmp?
The basic difference between these two are : strcmp compares both the strings till null-character of either string comes whereas strncmp compares at most num characters of both strings. But if num is equal to the length of either string than strncmp behaves similar to strcmp.
Is Strcmp safe?
If you are passing strings to strcmp() that are not null terminated you have already lost. The fact that you have a string that is not null terminated (but should be) indicates that you have deeper issues in your code. You cannot change strcmp() to safely deal with this problem.
Which file opens automatically in C?
When a C program starts its execution the program automatically opens three standard streams named stdin , stdout , and stderr .
