tuple_less_elemtuple_less_elemTupleLessElemTupleLessElem (Operator)


tuple_less_elemtuple_less_elemTupleLessElemTupleLessElem — Test, whether a tuple is elementwise less than another tuple.

Herror tuple_less_elem(const Hlong T1, const Hlong T2, Hlong* Less)

tuple_less_elemtuple_less_elemTupleLessElemTupleLessElemTupleLessElem tests elementwise whether the input tuple T1T1T1T1t1 is less than T2T2T2T2t2. If both tuples have the same length, the corresponding elements of both tuples are compared. Otherwise, either T1T1T1T1t1 or T2T2T2T2t2 must have length 1. In this case, the comparison is performed for each element of the longer tuple with the single element of the other tuple. As a precondition for comparing the tuples elementwise two corresponding elements must either both be (integer or floating point) numbers or both be strings. Otherwise tuple_less_elemtuple_less_elemTupleLessElemTupleLessElemTupleLessElem returns an error.

Exception: Empty input tuples

If either or both of the input tuples are empty, the operator returns an empty tuple.

HDevelop In-line Operation
