The gmp_cmp() is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to compare two GMP numbers(GNU Multiple Precision : For large numbers).
Parameters: This function accepts two GMP numbers $num1 and $num2 as mandatory parameters as shown in the above syntax for comparing. These parameters can be a GMP object in PHP version 5.6 and later, or we are also allowed to pass numeric strings such that it is possible to convert those strings in numbers.
Return Value: The function returns “1” if $num1 > $num2, “0” if $num1 equal to $num2, “-1” if $num1 < $num2.
Input : gmp_cmp("1234", "1236") Output : -1 Input : gmp_cmp("3569", "3569") Output : 0
