Relational expressions are:

Expression | Result |
---|---|

x `<` y | True if x is less than y. |

x `<=` y | True if x is less than or equal to y. |

x `>` y | True if x is greater than y. |

x `>=` y | True if x is greater than or equal to y. |

x `=` y | True if x is equal to y. |

x `!=` y | True if x is not equal to y. |

The relational expressions apply to string as well as to numbers. When a relational operation applies to strings, case-sensitive comparison is used, e.g.:

"String" = "string" ⇒ False "String" < "string" ⇒ True
