Example Function compare 013

 

 

Description

These examples use the compare functions to do a case-sensitive comparison of the Function Object ID. A Boolean value is returned.

 

Details

(setq a sub1) Returns: sub1
(setq b add1) Returns: add1
(compare a b) Returns: 1
(compare add1 add1 ) Returns: 0
(compare sub1 add1 ) Returns: 1

Notes and Hints

If you prefer a Boolean resulting from the comparison , use the compareEQ, compareNE, compareGT, compareLT functions.
