XmStringByteCompare(3)	   Library Functions Manual	XmStringByteCompare(3)

NAME
       XmStringByteCompare  --	A  compound string function that indicates the
       results of a byte-by-byte comparison

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<Xm/Xm.h>
       Boolean XmStringByteCompare(
       XmString	s1,
       XmString	s2);

DESCRIPTION
       This function is	obsolete and exists for	 compatibility	with  previous
       releases.  XmStringByteCompare returns a	Boolean	indicating the results
       of a byte-by-byte comparison of two compound strings.

       In general, if two compound strings are created with the	same (char  *)
       string  using XmStringCreateLocalized in	the same language environment,
       the compound strings compare as equal.  If  two	compound  strings  are
       created	with  the  same	(char *) string	and the	same font list element
       tag set other than  XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG  using  XmStringCreate,  the
       strings compare as equal.

       In some cases, once a compound string is	put into a widget, that	string
       is converted into an internal form to allow faster processing. Part  of
       the conversion process strips out unnecessary or	redundant information.
       If an application then does  an	XtGetValues  to	 retrieve  a  compound
       string  from  a widget (specifically, Label and all of its subclasses),
       it is not guaranteed that the compound string returned is byte-for-byte
       the same	as the string given to the widget originally.

       s1	 Specifies a compound string to	be compared with s2

       s2	 Specifies a compound string to	be compared with s1

RETURN
       Returns True if two compound strings are	identical byte-by-byte.
