# operator>= (<valarray>)

Tests whether the elements of one valarray are greater than or equal to the elements of an equally sized valarray or whether all the elements of a valarray are greater than or equal to or less than or equal to a specified value.

## Syntax

```template<class Type>
valarray<bool> operator>=(
const valarray<Type>& _Left,
const valarray<Type>& _Right
);
template<class Type>
valarray<bool> operator>=(
const valarray<Type>& _Left,
const Type& _Right
);
template<class Type>
valarray<bool> operator>=(
const Type& _Left,
const valarray<Type>& _Right
);
```

## Parameters

_Left

The first of the two valarrays whose elements are to be compared or a specified value to be compared with each element of a valarray.

_Right

The second of the two valarrays whose elements are to be compared or a specified value to be compared with each element of a valarray.

## Return Value

A valarray of Boolean values, each of which is:

• true if the _Left element or value is greater than or equal to the corresponding _Right element or value.

• false if the _Left element or value is less than the corresponding _Right element or value.

## Remarks

If the number of elements in two valarrays is not equal, the result is undefined.

## Example

```// valarray_op_ge.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
#include <valarray>
#include <iostream>

int main( )
{
using namespace std;
int i;

valarray<int> vaL ( 10 ), vaR ( 10 );
valarray<bool> vaNE ( 10 );
for ( i = 0 ; i < 10 ; i += 2 )
vaL [ i ] =  -i;
for ( i = 1 ; i < 10 ; i += 2 )
vaL [ i ] =  i;
for ( i = 0 ; i < 10 ; i++ )
vaR [ i ] =  i - 1;

cout << "The initial Left valarray is: ( ";
for ( i = 0 ; i < 10 ; i++ )
cout << vaL [ i ] << " ";
cout << ")." << endl;

cout << "The initial Right valarray is: ( ";
for ( i = 0 ; i < 10 ; i++ )
cout << vaR [ i ] << " ";
cout << ")." << endl;

vaNE = ( vaL >= vaR );
cout << "The element-by-element result of "
<< "the greater than or equal test is the\n valarray: ( ";
for ( i = 0 ; i < 10 ; i++ )
cout << vaNE [ i ] << " ";
cout << ")." << endl;
}
```
```The initial Left valarray is: ( 0 1 -2 3 -4 5 -6 7 -8 9 ).
The initial Right valarray is: ( -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 ).
The element-by-element result of the greater than or equal test is the
valarray: ( 1 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 ).```
