Compares two values. If the first value is less than the second, the integer value 1 (int32) is pushed onto the evaluation stack; otherwise 0 (int32) is pushed onto the evaluation stack.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:
Pushes 1 if value1 is less than value2; else pushes 0.
The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is: value1 is pushed onto the stack.
value2 is pushed onto the stack.
value2 and value1 are popped from the stack; clt tests if value1 is less than value2.
If value1 is less than value2, 1 is pushed onto the stack; otherwise 0 is pushed onto the stack.
The clt instruction compares value1 and value2. If value1 is strictly less than value2, then an int32 value of 1 is pushed on the stack. Otherwise, an int32 value of 0 is pushed on the stack.
For floating-point numbers, clt returns 0 if the numbers are unordered (that is, if one or both of the arguments are NaN).
The following Emit method overload can use the clt opcode:
