Relational Operators in Objective-C


Advertisements


Following table shows all the relational operators supported by Objective-C language. Assume variable A holds 10 and variable B holds 20, then −

Operator Description Example
== Checks if the values of two operands are equal or not; if yes, then condition becomes true. (A == B) is not true.
!= Checks if the values of two operands are equal or not; if values are not equal, then condition becomes true. (A != B) is true.
> Checks if the value of left operand is greater than the value of right operand; if yes, then condition becomes true. (A > B) is not true.
< Checks if the value of left operand is less than the value of right operand; if yes, then condition becomes true. (A < B) is true.
>= Checks if the value of left operand is greater than or equal to the value of right operand; if yes, then condition becomes true. (A >= B) is not true.
<= Checks if the value of left operand is less than or equal to the value of right operand; if yes, then condition becomes true. (A <= B) is true.

Example

Try the following example to understand all the relational operators available in Objective-C programming language −

Live Demo
#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>

int main() {
   int a = 21;
   int b = 10;

   if( a == b ) {
      NSLog(@"Line 1 - a is equal to b\n" );
   } else {
      NSLog(@"Line 1 - a is not equal to b\n" );
   }
   
   if ( a < b ) {
      NSLog(@"Line 2 - a is less than b\n" );
   } else {
      NSLog(@"Line 2 - a is not less than b\n" );
   } 
   
   if ( a > b ) {
      NSLog(@"Line 3 - a is greater than b\n" );
   } else {
      NSLog(@"Line 3 - a is not greater than b\n" );
   }
   
   /* Lets change value of a and b */
   a = 5;
   b = 20;
   
   if ( a <= b ) {
      NSLog(@"Line 4 - a is either less than or equal to  b\n" );
   }
   
   if ( b >= a ) {
      NSLog(@"Line 5 - b is either greater than  or equal to b\n" );
   }
}

When you compile and execute the above program, it produces the following result −
