NAME [Toc] [Back]
XmStringByteCompare - A compound string function that indicates the
results of a byte-by-byte comparison
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
This function is obsolete and exists for compatibility with previous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 [Toc] [Back]
Returns True if two compound strings are identical byte-by-byte.
