The generic-text function _tcscoll, which is defined in TCHAR.H, maps to either strcoll, wcscoll, or _mbscoll, depending on the character set that is defined at compile time. Each function performs a case-sensitive comparison of the strings according to the code page currently in use. For more information, see strcoll, wcscoll, _mbscoll, _strcoll_l, _wcscoll_l, _mbscoll_l.
