* As a side effect, advance the offset parameter to the limit of

* @param offset on input, the index into text at which to begin
* matching. On output, the limit of the matched text. The
* number of matched characters is the output value of offset
* minus the input value. Offset should always point to the
* HIGH SURROGATE (leading code unit) of a pair of surrogates,
* both on entry and upon return.
* @param limit the limit index of text to be matched. Greater
* than offset for a forward direction match, less than offset for
* a backward direction match. The last character to be
* considered for matching will be text.charAt(limit-1) in the
* forward direction or text.charAt(limit+1) in the backward
* direction.
* @param incremental if TRUE, then assume further characters may
* be inserted at limit and check for partial matching. Otherwise
* assume the text as given is complete.
* @return a match degree value indicating a full match, a partial
* match, or a mismatch. If incremental is FALSE then
