Compares two values. If the first value is greater than the second, the integer value 1 (int32) is pushed onto the evaluation stack; otherwise 0 (int32) is pushed onto the evaluation stack.

Description

FE 02

cgt

Pushes 1 if value1 is greater than value2; else pushes 0.

The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:

  1. value1 is pushed onto the stack.

  2. value2 is pushed onto the stack.

  3. value2 and value1 are popped from the stack; cgt tests if value1 is greater than value2.

  4. If value1 is greater than value2, 1 is pushed onto the stack; otherwise 0 is pushed onto the stack.

The cgt instruction compares value1 and value2. If value1 is strictly greater 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, cgt 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 cgt opcode:

  • ILGenerator.Emit(OpCode)
