Rexx Programming/How to Rexx/numeric comparison
The following example shows a numerical comparison being using comparative operators:
x = 3 if x > 2 then
say "x is greater than 2"
The following comparative operators are supported:
= Equal To \= Not Equal To < Less Than > Greater Than <= Less Than or Equal To >= Greater Than or Equal To \< Not Less Than \> Not Greater Than <> Not Equal To >< Not Equal To
Leading zeros are ignored for numerical comparisons
For a numerical comparison to be made, leading zeros are ignored:
x = "002" if x = 2 then say "x equals 2"
Leading and trailing whitespace is ignored for numerical comparisons
y = " 10 " if y = 10 then say "y equals 10"
