Warning: The ANSI version of AnsiStrComp is deprecated. Please use the AnsiStrings unit.

Compares null-terminated character strings.

AnsiStrComp compares S1 to S2, with case sensitivity. The compare operation is controlled by the current locale. The return value is one of the following.

Condition Return Value

S1 > S2

> 0

S1 < S2

< 0

S1 = S2

= 0

Note: Most locales consider lowercase characters to be less than the corresponding uppercase characters. This is in contrast to ASCII order, in which lowercase characters are greater than uppercase characters.

Note: This function supports multi-byte character sets (MBCS).
