`CompareQuartets()`

uses explicit enumeration to compare two lists of
quartet states (Estabrook et al. 1985)
,
detailing how many are identical and how many are unresolved.
For most purposes, the faster function `QuartetStatus()`

will be
preferable.

## Arguments

- x, cf
List of quartet states, perhaps generated by

`QuartetStates()`

.

## Value

Returns an array of seven numeric elements, corresponding

- N
The total number of quartet

*statements*for two trees of*n*leaves, i.e. 2*Q*.- Q
The total number of quartets for

*n*leaves.- s
The number of quartets that are resolved identically in both trees.

- d
The number of quartets that are resolved differently in each tree.

- r1
The number of quartets that are resolved in tree 1, but not in tree 2.

- r2
The number of quartets that are resolved in tree 2, but not in tree 1.

- u
The number of quartets that are unresolved in both trees.
