GN_Cme, Compare null-terminated strings

Register parameters

RST 20H, DEFW $4209
IN:
     BHL = extended pointer to first string (B = 0, HL is local)
     DE = local pointer to second string

OUT:
     Fz = 0, strings are different
     Fz = 1, strings are equal

Registers changed after return:
     ..BCDEHL/IXIY same
     AF....../.... different 

Notes

  • Both strings should be null-terminated
  • Comparison is case-independent ('A' and 'a' are the same)
