OpCodes.Clt Field

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.

Remarks

The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:

Format Assembly Format Description
FE 04 clt 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.

  1. value2 is pushed onto the stack.
  2. value2 and value1 are popped from the stack; clt tests if value1 is less than value2.
  3. 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 constructor overload can use the clt opcode:

  • ILGenerator.Emit(OpCode)
