MapleTA[Builtin][ge] - greater-than or equal test

 Calling Sequence ge(a, b)

Parameters

 a, b - any expression

Description

 • The ge command returns true if a is greater than or equal to b. Otherwise false is returned.
 • This is slightly different than in Maple T.A. proper, which understands 1.0 and 0.0 as true and false.  Because Maple does not equate numbers as boolean conditionals, it is more appropriate to have this function return true and false inside Maple.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{MapleTA}:-\mathrm{Builtin}:-\mathrm{ge}\left(1,2\right)$
 ${\mathrm{false}}$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{MapleTA}:-\mathrm{Builtin}:-\mathrm{ge}\left(2,1\right)$
 ${\mathrm{true}}$ (2)
 > $\mathrm{MapleTA}:-\mathrm{Builtin}:-\mathrm{ge}\left(1,1\right)$
 ${\mathrm{true}}$ (3)
