[Pdx-pm] string function

I'm having trouble thinking of a good way to compare two strings and
find out where they differ.
For example, given:
I would like to find the number of matching characters starting from
the front or back of the strings. These would be,
3 match from the front
4 match from the back
There must be some slick way to do this without looking at each
individual character in a loop. What am I missing?
Thanks -- Ward
