#include <list>

using namespace std;

int main(void) {
   list<int> l1 = {1, 2, 3, 4};
   list<int> l2 = {1, 2, 3};

   if (l1 > l2)
      cout << "List l1 is greater that l2" << endl;

   l1.pop_back();

   if (!(l1 > l2))
      cout << "List l1 is not greater that l2" << endl;

   return 0;
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −

List l1 is greater that l2
List l1 is not greater that l2
