The sign of a non-zero return value shall be determined by the sign of the difference between the values of the first pair of bytes (both interpreted as type unsigned char) that differ in the objects being compared.

Return value

The memcmp() function shall return an integer greater than, equal to, or less than 0, if the object pointed to by s1 is greater than, equal to, or less than the object pointed to by s2, respectively.
