9DEC '<>' operator

Submitted by Steve Fewell


Increment the Text Pointer B offset (so that the next character is the character
after the '>').

Call &9CC9 to Compare the current value with the second value and set the flags
according to which value is greater, or whether the values are equal.

If the zero flag is not set then the values are not equal, so set the IWA to TRUE.
Otherwise, set the IWA to FALSE.
Exit with A = #&40 (as we are currently handling an Integer value).
