Here's a neat trick for checking whether two strings are equal:
Is this good style?
It is not particularly good style, although it is a popular idiom. The test succeeds
if the two strings are equal, but the use of ! (``not'') suggests that
it tests for inequality.
Another option is to define a macro:
#define Streq(s1, s2) (strcmp((s1), (s2)) == 0)
which you can then use like this:
Another option (which borders on preprocessor abuse;is to define
#define StrRel(s1, op, s2) (strcmp(s1, s2) op 0)
after which you can say things like
if(StrRel(s1, ==, s2)) ...
if(StrRel(s1, !=, s2)) ...
if(StrRel(s1, >=, s2)) ...
