ABSTRACT

Article 219 of comp.sources.misc:

	This posting contains a package for string-comparisons in a
fairly sophisticated way where regard to accents, non-letters and case
is only taken if necessary.
	The user defines how each character should be sorted, whether
if it is a letter, and whether it is a variant of another letter. See
READ.ME [STRCOMP.DOC] for complete description.
	The purpose is not to provide a facility, though, rather to
demonstrate the idea. The code is in Ada.
	Comments and questions are welcome to:
