In Go language slice is more powerful, flexible, convenient than an array, and is a lightweight data structure. The slice is a variable-length sequence which stores elements of a similar type, you are not allowed to store different type of elements in the same slice. In the Go slice, you are allowed to compare two slices of the byte type with each other using Compare() function. This function returns an integer value which represents that these slices are equal or not and the values are:
- If the result is 0, then slice_1 == slice_2.
- If the result is -1, then slice_1 < slice_2.
- If the result is +1, then slice_1 > slice_2.
This function is defined under the bytes package so, you have to import bytes package in your program for accessing Compare function.
func Compare(slice_1, slice_2 byte) int
Let us discuss this concept with the help of the examples:
!..Slice are not equal..!
Slice 1: [65 78 77 79 80 81] Slice 2: [97 103 116 101 113 109] Slice 3: [65 78 77 79 80 81] Slice 4: [65 110 77 111 112 81] Result 1: -1 Result 2: 0 Result 3: -1 Result 4: 1 Result 5: 1 Result 6: 1 Result 7: 0 Result 8: -1 Result 9: -1 Result 10: 1 Result 11: -1 Result 12: 1 Result 13: 0
