8.2.57.22 string.strcmp

Method: out = strcmp (A, B)

String comparison.

Tests whether each element in A is exactly equal to the corresponding element in B. Missing values are not considered equal to each other.

This does the same comparison as A == B, but is not polymorphic. Generally, there is no reason to use strcmp instead of == or eq on string arrays, unless you want to be compatible with cellstr inputs as well.

Returns logical array the size of the scalar expansion of A and B.
