status.i4.v = ip_address_compare(ip_address.i1a.r, ip_address_2.i1a.r)

	This routine determines whether or not two IP address strings
	point to the same address.

	ip_address	null terminated IP address value
	ip_address_2	second null terminated IP address value

	This function returns status values as follows:

	negative value		ACNET format error code
	TRUE			IP addresses are different
	FALSE			IP addresses are the same

	This function requires the following include files:

	cbslib_h, cnsparam_h

	Related functions:

	is_numeric_ip_address, ascii_to_numeric(_c), numeric_to_ascii(_c),
	acnet_node_ip_address_c, ip_address_to_acnet_node,

	C/C++ usage:

	static const char	ip_address[] = "clx34.fnal.gov";
	static const char	ip_address_2[] = "";
	int	status;

	status = ip_address_compare(ip_name,ip_name_2);
