C++ Comparison Operators
Comparison operators are used to compare two values.
Note: The return value of a comparison is either true (
1) or false (
In the following example, we use the greater than operator (
>) to find out if 5 is greater than 3:
int y = 3;
cout << (x > y); // returns 1 (true) because 5 is greater than 3
A list of all comparison operators:
|==||Equal to||x == y||Try it »|
|!=||Not equal||x != y||Try it »|
|>||Greater than||x > y||Try it »|
|<||Less than||x < y||Try it »|
|>=||Greater than or equal to||x >= y||Try it »|
|<=||Less than or equal to||x <= y||Try it »|
You will learn much more about comparison operators and how to use them in a later chapter.
