what is the easiest way to compare strings for alphabeticalness?

Can I check alphabeticallness as easily as

"aaa" "bgeoid"

?

$var1 = "cccccc";
$var2 = "f";

if ($var1 $var2) {
// do something here
}
Is this a reliable way to check strings, or will I get tripped up in
some situations?

Try the strcmp function.
