       mtext_compare - Compare specified regions of two M-texts.


       int mtext_compare (MText * mt1, int from1, int to1, MText * mt2, int from2, int to2)


       Compare specified regions of two M-texts. The mtext_compare() function compares two
       M-texts mt1 and mt2, character-by-character. The compared regions are between from1 and
       to1 in mt1 and from2 to to2 in MT2.  from1 and from2 are inclusive, to1 and to2 are
       exclusive.  from1 being equal to to1 (or from2 being equal to to2) means an M-text of
       length zero. An invalid region specification is regarded as both from1 and to1 (or from2
       and to2) being 0.


           This function returns 1, 0, or -1 if mt1 is found greater than, equal to, or less than
           mt2, respectively. Comparison is based on character codes.
