## (Greater than)

Type:
Function
Description: Greater Than Function: Tests whether one object is greater than another object.
The function > returns a true test result (1) if the first argument is greater than the second
argument, or a false test result (0) otherwise.
If one object is a symbolic (an algebraic or a name), and the other is a number or symbolic or
unit object, > returns a symbolic comparison expression that can be evaluated to return a test
result.
For real numbers and binary integers, "greater than" means numerically greater (2 is greater than
1). For real numbers, "greater than" also means less negative (–1 is greater than –2).
For strings, "greater than" means alphabetically subsequent ("DEF" is greater than "ABC";
"AAB" is greater than "AAA"; "AA" is greater than "A"). In general, characters are ordered
according to their character codes. This means, for example, that "a" is greater than "B", since
"B" is character code 66, and "a" is character code 97.
For unit objects, the two objects must be dimensionally consistent and are converted to common
units for comparison. If you use simple temperature units, the calculator assumes the values
represent temperatures and not differences in temperatures. For compound temperature units,
the calculator assumes temperature units represent temperature differences. For more
information on using temperature units with arithmetic functions, refer to the entry for +.
