/* Notes on string comparisions.
**
** We want the main string comparision function used for sorting to
** sort both numbers and alphanumeric words into the correct sequence.
** The same routine should do both without prior knowledge of which
** type of text the input represents.  It should even work for strings
** which are a mixture of text and numbers.
**
** To accomplish this, we keep track of a state number while scanning
** the two strings.  The states are as follows:
**
**    1      Beginning of word
**    2      Arbitrary text
**    3      Integer
**    4      Negative integer
**    5      Real number
**    6      Negative real
**
** The scan begins in state 1, beginning of word.  Transitions to other
** states are determined by characters seen, as shown in the following
** chart:
**
**      Current State         Character Seen  New State
**      --------------------  --------------  -------------------
**      0 Beginning of word   "-"             3 Negative integer
