MapleTA[Builtin][lt] - less-than test

Calling Sequence

lt(a, b)

Parameters

a, b

-

any expression

Description

• 

The lt command returns true if a is less than 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

MapleTA:-Builtin:-lt2,1

false

(1)

MapleTA:-Builtin:-lt1,1

false

(2)

MapleTA:-Builtin:-lt1,2

true

(3)
