NAME

asn_cmp - compare two arbitrary size numbers

SYNOPSIS

int asn_cmp(string a, string b)

DESCRIPTION

Compare a and b, returning -1 if a is smaller than b, 1 if a is larger than b, or 0 if a is equal to b. Arbitrary size numbers are encoded as strings, most significant byte first. The most significant bit in the first byte, when set, indicates that the number is negative and encoded in two's complement.
