Example Directory comparison functions 005

 

 

Description

These examples use the comparison functions to do a case-sensitive comparison of two objects of the same type. A Boolean value is returned.

 

Details

Both Directories are equal.

(= #{dir|X: 1 Y: 2} #{dir|X: 1 Y: 2}) Returns: true
(< #{dir|X: 0 Y: 1} #{dir|X: 1 Y: 2}) Returns: true
(> #{dir|A: 1 B: 2} #{dir|X: 1 Y: 2}) Returns: false
(< #{dir|A: 1 B: 2} #{dir|X: 1 Y: 2}) Returns: true

Notes and Hints

If you prefer an integer resulting from the comparison (0 for equal, -1 for less than, and 1 for greater than), use the compare function.
