Compare first n characters of strings ignoring case
strncmpi(' returns 1 if the first
n characters of the strings
str2 are the same except for case, and 0 otherwise.
TF = strncmpi(S,T,n)
T is a cell array of strings, returns an array the same size as
T containing 1 for those elements of
T that match except for case (up to
n characters), and 0 otherwise.
T must be the same size (or one can be a scalar cell). Either one can also be a character array with the right number of rows.
strncmpi is intended for comparison of character data. When used to compare numeric data,
strncmpi supports international character sets.
