strcpy () : If Sl and S2 are the names of two strings, the function call strcpy (S1, S2) copies

the contents of S2 including null character on to Sl. If S2 is smaller than Sl, there is no problem, however, if S2 is bigger than Sl the operation will eat into adjacent memory.

 The function strcmp () is widely used in sorting of lists of names. Let S1 and S2 be the names of two strings. The function compares lexicographically (dictionary style) string S1 with string S2. It returns -1, 0, 1, respectively, if S1 is less than S2 , equal to S2, or greater than S2. Program illustrates its application.
