fstrcmpi — fuzzy comparison of two strings

Synopsis

#include <fstrcmp.h>

#define FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL
#define FSTRCMPI_THRESHOLD
#define FSTRCMPI_ERROR

int fstrcmpi(const char *string1, const char *string2);

Description

The fstrcmpi() function compares the two strings, string1 and string2.

Return Value

The fstrcmpi function returns an int value between 0 and FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL. A value of 0 means the strings are utterly un-alike. A value of FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL means the strings are identical. A value of more than FSTRCMPI_THRESHOLD (it lies between 0 and FSTRCMPI_IDENTICAL) would be considered "similar" by most people.

A value of FSTRCMPI_ERROR (always negative) indicates a malloc(3) failure.
