Node: Comparison on Numbers, Next: Arithmetic Operations, Previous: Predicates on Numbers, Up: Numbers
Numbers can be compared with the following functions.
lessThan x y | Function |
greaterThan x y | Function |
lessThanOrEqual x y | Function |
greaterThanOrEqual x y | Function |
These functions take Lpp Number objects for arguments x and
y and return non-nil
if the comparison is true and
nil
otherwise. For each of these functions respectively
non-nil
is returned if x is less than y, x
is greater than y, x is less than or equal to y,
x is greater than or equal to y.
Note that the equality of Numbers can be checked using equal
and more efficiently using eql
