/* str_diff returns negative, 0, or positive, depending on whether the
 * string a[0], a[1], ..., a[n]=='\0' is lexicographically smaller than,
 * equal to, or greater than the string b[0], b[1], ..., b[m-1]=='\0'.
 * When the strings are different, str_diff does not read bytes past the
 * first difference. */
