=head1 NAME
OPENSSL_strcasecmp, OPENSSL_strncasecmp - compare two strings ignoring case
#include <openssl/crypto.h>
int OPENSSL_strcasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2);
int OPENSSL_strncasecmp(const char *s1, const char *s2, size_t n);
The OPENSSL_strcasecmp function performs a byte-by-byte comparison of the strings
B<s1> and B<s2>, ignoring the case of the characters.
The OPENSSL_strncasecmp function is similar, except that it compares no more than
B<n> bytes of B<s1> and B<s2>.
In POSIX-compatible system and on Windows these functions use "C" locale for
case insensitive. Otherwise the comparison is done in current locale.
Both functions return an integer less than, equal to, or greater than zero if
s1 is found, respectively, to be less than, to match, or be greater than s2.
=head1 NOTES
OpenSSL extensively uses case insensitive comparison of ASCII strings. Though
OpenSSL itself is locale-agnostic, the applications using OpenSSL libraries may
unpredictably suffer when they use localization (e.g. Turkish locale is
well-known with a specific I/i cases). These functions use C locale for string
