    Hello All,

    Is there any difference between memcmp()/memcpy() and the
    bcmp()/bcopy() version of functions? from man page i can only get that
    both are same.

    The difference is that memcmp()/memcpy() are ISO standard but bcmp()/
    bcopy() are not.

    One is a standard C library function, the other isn't.
