+=head1 NAME
+CRYPTO_memcmp - Constant time memory comparison
+=head1 SYNOPSIS
+ #include <openssl/crypto.h>
+ int CRYPTO_memcmp(const void *a, const void *b, size_t len);
+The CRYPTO_memcmp function compares the B<len> bytes pointed to by B<a> and B<b>
+for equality.
+It takes an amount of time dependent on B<len>, but independent of the
+contents of the memory regions pointed to by B<a> and B<b>.
+CRYPTO_memcmp() returns 0 if the memory regions are equal and non-zero
+=head1 NOTES
+Unlike memcmp(2), this function cannot be used to order the two memory regions
+as the return value when they differ is undefined, other than being non-zero.
