>=Greater than or equal--binary (Relational) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------Syntax<exp1> >= <exp2>TypeCharacter, date, logical, memo, numericOperands<exp1>and<exp2>are expressions of any data type to be compared.DescriptionThe greater than or equal to operator (>=) is a binary operator that compares two values of the same data type and returns true (.T.) if <exp1> is greater than or equal to <exp2>.. Character:The comparison is based on the underlying ASCII code. ASCII codes for alphabetic characters are ascending (e.g., the code for "A" is 65 and the code for "Z" is 90).. Date:Dates are compared according to the underlying date value.. Logical:True (.T.) is greater than false (.F.).. Memo:Treated the same as character.. Numeric:Compared based on magnitude.Examples.These examples illustrate how the greater than or equal operator (>=) behaves with different data types: // Character ? "Z" >= "A" // Result: .T. ? "AZ" >= "A" // Result: .T. ? "A" >= "AZ" // Result: .F. // Date ? CTOD("12/12/88") >= ; CTOD("12/11/88") // Result: .T. // Logical ? .T. >= .F. // Result: .T. // Numeric ? 2 >= 1 // Result: .T. ? 1 >= 2 // Result: .F. ? 2 >= 2 // Result: .T.
