Example String compare 001

 

 

Description

These examples use the compare function to compare two Strings and returns the result in numeric value. In these examples, lowercase characters are compared as against uppercase characters. In the ASCII table, uppercase characters are represented by 65 to 90 while lowercase characters are repsented by 97 to 122. Using this table, lowercase characters have greater value than uppercase characters.

 

Details

Both strings are equal.

(compare "Hello World" "Hello World" ) Returns: 0

In this example, lowercase "h" in the first string has a higher value in the ASCII table than uppercase "H", therefore the first string is greater than the second string.

(compare "hello world" "Hello World" ) Returns: 1

In this example, "G" in the first string has a lesser value in the ASCII table than uppercase "H", therefore the first string is lesser than the second string.

(compare "Goodbye World" "Hello World" ) Returns: -1
