std::greater_equal in C++ with Examples

  • Last Updated : 01 May, 2020

The std::greater_equal is a member of the functional class (<functional.h>). It is used to generate results of comparisons that are similar to the operator(≥). The advantage of this function over the operator(≥) is that it use the strict total order to generate the result, as opposed to the operator(≥) which uses the partial order. It returns a boolean value depending upon the condition. It can be used for comparing integers, characters, or strings, etc.

#include <functional.h>

Template Class:

template <class T> struct greater_equal {

  // Declaration of the
  // greater equal operation 
  bool operator() (const T& x, const T& y) 
       const 
  {
      return x>=y;
  }

  // Type of first parameter
  typedef T first_argument_type;

  // Type of second parameter
  typedef T second_argument_type;

  // The result is returned
  // as bool type
  typedef bool result_type;
};

Parameter: This function accepts the type of the arguments T, as the parameter, to be compared by the functional call.



Return Type: It return a boolean value depending upon condition (let a & b are 2 element):

  • True: If a is greater than equals to b.
  • False: If a is less than b.

Below is the illustration of std::greater_equal in C++:

Program 1:




// C++ program to illustrate greater_equal
  
#include <algorithm>
#include <functional>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
  
// Function to print the array arr[]
void printArray(int arr[], int N)
{
  
    for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
        cout << arr[i] << ' ';
    }
}
  
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 1, 5, 8, 9, 6,
                  7, 3, 4, 2, 0 };
  
    int N = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
  
    // Sort the array in decreasing order
    sort(arr, arr + N, greater_equal<int>());
  
    // Print sorted array
    printArray(arr, N);
    return 0;
}
Output:
9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0

Program 2:




// C++ program to illustrate greater_equal
  
#include <algorithm>
#include <functional>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
  
// Driver Code
int main()
{
  
    int arr[] = { 30, 40, -50, 60, -70,
                  10, 20, -80, 90, 100 };
    int N = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
  
    // Print the number of elements less
    // than 0
    cout << count_if(
        arr, arr + N,
        bind2nd(greater_equal<int>(),
                0));
    return 0;
}
Output:
7
