SnmpUtilOidNCmp function (snmp.h)

[SNMP is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. Instead, use Windows Remote Management, which is the Microsoft implementation of WS-Man.]

The SnmpUtilOidNCmp function compares two object identifiers. The function compares the subidentifiers in the variables until it reaches the number of subidentifiers specified by the nSubIds parameter. SnmpUtilOidNCmp is an element of the SNMP Utility API.
