> (greater than) operator

Type Assocation Precedence Input types Output types
binary left 3 int

This operator compares the first operand to the second operand and returns true if the first operand is larger, or false otherwise. Examples:

  3 > 2        ; true  5 > 5        ; false  2.12 > 3     ; false  4.23 > 3.86  ; true    


  • This operator can also be used with complex operands (in which case it only compares the real parts), but this is not recommended and results in a compiler warning. You should use real, imag, cabs, or the |…| operator when comparing complex expressions.
  • a > b is equal to !(a <= b)
