Functions

func Compare

func Compare[T Ordered](x, y T) int

Compare returns

-1 if x is less than y,
 0 if x equals y,
+1 if x is greater than y.

For floating-point types, a NaN is considered less than any non-NaN, a NaN is considered equal to a NaN, and -0.0 is equal to 0.0.

func Less

func Less[T Ordered](x, y T) bool

Less reports whether x is less than y. For floating-point types, a NaN is considered less than any non-NaN, and -0.0 is not less than (is equal to) 0.0.

Types

type Ordered

type Ordered interface {
	~int | ~int8 | ~int16 | ~int32 | ~int64 |
		~uint | ~uint8 | ~uint16 | ~uint32 | ~uint64 | ~uintptr |
		~float32 | ~float64 |
		~string
}

Ordered is a constraint that permits any ordered type: any type that supports the operators < <= >= >. If future releases of Go add new ordered types, this constraint will be modified to include them.

Note that floating-point types may contain NaN ("not-a-number") values. An operator such as == or < will always report false when comparing a NaN value with any other value, NaN or not. See the Compare function for a consistent way to compare NaN values.
