Perl | gt operator
  • Last Updated : 07 May, 2019

gt‘ operator in Perl is one of the string comparison operators used to check for the equality of the two strings. It is used to check if the string to its left is stringwise greater than the string to its right.

Syntax: String1 lt String2

Returns: 1 if left argument is greater than the right argument

Example 1:




#!/usr/local/bin/perl
  
# Initializing Strings
$a = "Welcome";
$b = "Geeks";
  
# Comparing the strings using gt operator
$c = $a gt $b;
  
if($c == 1)
{
    print"String1 is greater than String2";
}
else
{
    print"String1 is not greater than String2";
}
Output:
String1 is greater than String2

Example 2:




#!/usr/local/bin/perl
  
# Initializing Strings
$a = "Geeks";
$b = "GeeksWelcome";
  
# Comparing the strings using gt operator
$c = $a gt $b;
  
if($c == 1)
{
    print"String1 is greater than String2";
}
else
{
    print"String1 is not greater than String2";
}
Output:
String1 is not greater than String2
