lt‘ 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 less than the string to its right.
Syntax: String1 lt String2 Returns: 1 if left argument is less than the right argument
Example 1:
#!/usr/local/bin/perl
  
# Initializing Strings
$a = "Geeks";
$b = "Welcome";
  
# Comparing the strings using lt operator
$c = $a lt $b;
  
if($c == 1)
{
    print"String1 is less than String2";
}
else
{
    print"String1 is not less than String2";
}

                    
Output:
String1 is less than String2
Example 2:
#!/usr/local/bin/perl
  
# Initializing Strings
$a = "GeeksWelcome";
$b = "Geeks";
  
# Comparing the strings using lt operator
$c = $a lt $b;
  
if($c == 1)
{
    print"String1 is less than String2";
}
else
{
    print"String1 is not less than String2";
}

                    
Output:
String1 is not less than String2
