    void *lsearch(void *key,void *base,int *nelem,int width,int (*fcmp)())

       - prototype in stdlib.h

       - does linear search in unsorted table for key
       - base points to 0th element of table
       - nelem integer pointer to number of entries in table
       - width contains number of bytes in each entry
       - key points to the search key
       - fcmp points to comparison routine, where key and elem are passed
         to it as pointers.  fcmp returns:

               integer < 0 if search key < elem
               integer = 0 if equal;
               integer > 0 if search key > elem

       - returns 0 if no match found, else address of first matching entry
