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

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

       This function is obsolete and exists for compatibility with previous releases.	XmString-
       ByteCompare  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

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

       XmStringCreate(3) and XmStringCreateLocalized(3).
