CStringT::operator >

Determines whether the string on the left side of the operator is greater than the string on the right side.

friend bool operator>(
   const CStringT& str1,
   const CStringT& str2
) throw();
friend bool operator>(
   const CStringT& str1
   PCXSTR psz2
) throw();
friend bool operator>(
   PCXSTR psz1
   const CStringT& str2
) throw();

str1

A CStringT for comparison.

str2

A CStringT for comparison.

psz1

A pointer to a null-terminated string for comparison.

psz2

A pointer to a null-terminated string for comparison.

A lexicographical comparison between strings, character by character until:

  • It finds two corresponding characters unequal, and the result of their comparison is taken as the result of the comparison between the strings.

  • It finds no inequalities, but one string has more characters than the other, and the shorter string is considered less than the longer string.

  • It finds no inequalities and finds that the strings have the same number of characters, so the strings are equal.

// typedef CStringT<TCHAR, StrTraitATL<TCHAR, ChTraitsCRT<TCHAR>>> CAtlString;
CAtlString s1(_T("cat")), s2(_T("cats")), s3(_T("dogs"));
ASSERT(_T("dog") > s1);
ASSERT(_T("cats") > s1);
ASSERT(_T("cats and dogs") > s2);
ASSERT(s3 > s2);
