XmStringByteCompare -- A compound string function that indicates the results of a byte-by-
This function is obsolete and exists for compatibility with previous releases.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
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.
