wcsncmp - compare part of two wide-character strings
The wcsncmp() function shall compare not more than n wide-character codes (wide-character codes that follow a null wide-character code are not compared) from the array pointed to by ws1 to the array pointed to by ws2.
Upon successful completion, wcsncmp() shall return an integer greater than, equal to, or less than 0, if the possibly null-terminated array pointed to by ws1 is greater than, equal to, or less than the possibly null-terminated array pointed to by ws2, respectively.
No errors are defined.
