.Sh NAME
.Nm wcscoll
.Nd compare wide strings according to current collation
.Sh LIBRARY
.Lb libc
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.In wchar.h
.Ft int
.Fn wcscoll "const wchar_t *s1" "const wchar_t *s2"
.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Fn wcscoll
function compares the nul-terminated strings
.Fa s1
and
.Fa s2
according to the current locale collation order.
In the
.Dq Li C
locale,
.Fn wcscoll
is equivalent to
.Fn wcscmp .
.Sh RETURN VALUES
The
.Fn wcscoll
function returns an integer greater than, equal to, or less than
0, if
.Fa s1
is greater than, equal to, or less than
.Fa s2 .
.Pp
No return value is reserved to indicate errors;
callers should set
.Va errno
to 0 before calling
.Fn wcscoll .
If it is non-zero upon return from
.Fn wcscoll ,
an error has occurred.
.Sh ERRORS
The
.Fn wcscoll
function will fail if:
.Bl -tag -width Er
.It Bq Er EILSEQ
An invalid wide-character code was specified.
.It Bq Er ENOMEM
Cannot allocate enough memory for temporary buffers.
.El
.Sh SEE ALSO
.Xr setlocale 3 ,
.Xr strcoll 3 ,
.Xr wcscmp 3 ,
.Xr wcsxfrm 3
.Sh STANDARDS
The
.Fn wcscoll
function conforms to
.St -isoC-99 .
.Sh BUGS
The current implementation of
.Fn wcscoll
function disregards
.Dv LC_COLLATE
locales, and falls back to using the
.Fn wcscmp
function.
