# numpy string operations | greater_equal() function

• Last Updated : 14 May, 2019

`numpy.core.defchararray.greater_equal(arr1, arr2)` is another function for doing string operations in numpy. It checks the elements of two same shaped string array one by one and returns True if the elements of `arr1` are greater than or equal to the elements of `arr2` i.e. `arr1 >= arr2 `.Otherwise, it returns False.

Parameters:
arr1 : array_like of str or unicode.1st input array.
arr2 : array_like of str or unicode.2nd input array.

Returns : [ndarray] Output array of bools, or a single bool if arr1 and arr2 are scalars.

Output:

```1st Input array :  numpy
2nd Input array :  nump
Output array:  True
```

Output:

```1st Input array :  ['Geeks' 'for' 'Geek' 'Numpy']
2nd Input array :  ['Geek' 'for' 'Geek' 'numpy']
Output array:  [ True  True  True False]
```

Output array:  [ True False  True  True]
