The strcicmp Command

The strcicmp command is used for string comparison in control structures.

strcicmp string1 string2
The strcicmp command is similar to strcmp, however the comparison result is case-insensitive, and the Spice3 return convention is not supported. The global return value (accessible as ``$?'') is set to the comparison value. The comparison value is a number that is less than, equal to, or greater than zero according to whether string1 is lexically before, equal to, or after string2. The two arguments are literal strings.
