don't know any such routines in delphi..but will it also do if i use
the normal string routines for ansi strings..i was thinking that
because ansi-string routines work byte-by-byte that might also be
valid for any other type of string (if 2 2-byte-characters are equal,
then their 4 1-byte-characters should also be equal respectively, and
so on...)
