Comparison Operators (PHP and Corel Paradox Cross Reference Guide)

By Mike Prestwood

PHP versus Corel Paradox: A side by side comparison between PHP and Corel Paradox.

 
Operators
 

A language symbol used for assignment, comparison, computational, or as a logical.

Comparison Operators

[Other Languages] 

General Info: Round Floating Point Numbers

When comparing floating point numbers, make sure you round to an acceptable level of rounding for the type of application you are using.

Languages Focus

A comparison operator compares two values either literals as in "Hello" and 3 or variables as in X and Counter. Most languages use the same operators for comparing both numbers and strings. Perl, for example, uses separate sets of comparison operators for numbers and strings.

PHP:   ==, != or <>

Common comparison operators:

== equal
!= or <> not equal
< less than
> greater than
<= less than or equal
>= greater than or equal

PHP 4 and above also offers === for indentical (equal plus same type) and !== for not identical (not equal or not same type).

Syntax Example:
//Does PHP evaluate the math correctly? No!
if (.1 + .1 + .1 == .3) {
echo "correct";
}
else {
echo "not correct";
}
Corel Paradox:   =, <>

Common comparison operators:

= equal
<> not equal
< less than
> greater than
<= less than or equal
>= greater than or equal

Syntax Example:
'Does ObjectPAL evaluate the math correctly? No!
If .1 + .1 + .1 = .3 Then
msgInfo("", "correct")
Else
msgInfo("", "not correct")
endIf
