Julia Language Standard Operators

Example

Julia supports a very large set of comparison operators. These include

  1. All of the following unicode sequences: > < >= ≥ <= ≤ == === ≡ != ≠ !== ≢ ∈ ∉ ∋ ∌ ⊆ ⊈ ⊂ ⊄ ⊊ ∝ ∊ ∍ ∥ ∦ ∷ ∺ ∻ ∽ ∾ ≁ ≃ ≄ ≅ ≆ ≇ ≈ ≉ ≊ ≋ ≌ ≍ ≎ ≐ ≑ ≒ ≓ ≔ ≕ ≖ ≗ ≘ ≙ ≚ ≛ ≜ ≝ ≞ ≟ ≣ ≦ ≧ ≨ ≩ ≪ ≫ ≬ ≭ ≮ ≯ ≰ ≱ ≲ ≳ ≴ ≵ ≶ ≷ ≸ ≹ ≺ ≻ ≼ ≽ ≾ ≿ ⊀ ⊁ ⊃ ⊅ ⊇ ⊉ ⊋ ⊏ ⊐ ⊑ ⊒ ⊜ ⊩ ⊬ ⊮ ⊰ ⊱ ⊲ ⊳ ⊴ ⊵ ⊶ ⊷ ⋍ ⋐ ⋑ ⋕ ⋖ ⋗ ⋘ ⋙ ⋚ ⋛ ⋜ ⋝ ⋞ ⋟ ⋠ ⋡ ⋢ ⋣ ⋤ ⋥ ⋦ ⋧ ⋨ ⋩ ⋪ ⋫ ⋬ ⋭ ⋲ ⋳ ⋴ ⋵ ⋶ ⋷ ⋸ ⋹ ⋺ ⋻ ⋼ ⋽ ⋾ ⋿ ⟈ ⟉ ⟒ ⦷ ⧀ ⧁ ⧡ ⧣ ⧤ ⧥ ⩦ ⩧ ⩪ ⩫ ⩬ ⩭ ⩮ ⩯ ⩰ ⩱ ⩲ ⩳ ⩴ ⩵ ⩶ ⩷ ⩸ ⩹ ⩺ ⩻ ⩼ ⩽ ⩾ ⩿ ⪀ ⪁ ⪂ ⪃ ⪄ ⪅ ⪆ ⪇ ⪈ ⪉ ⪊ ⪋ ⪌ ⪍ ⪎ ⪏ ⪐ ⪑ ⪒ ⪓ ⪔ ⪕ ⪖ ⪗ ⪘ ⪙ ⪚ ⪛ ⪜ ⪝ ⪞ ⪟ ⪠ ⪡ ⪢ ⪣ ⪤ ⪥ ⪦ ⪧ ⪨ ⪩ ⪪ ⪫ ⪬ ⪭ ⪮ ⪯ ⪰ ⪱ ⪲ ⪳ ⪴ ⪵ ⪶ ⪷ ⪸ ⪹ ⪺ ⪻ ⪼ ⪽ ⪾ ⪿ ⫀ ⫁ ⫂ ⫃ ⫄ ⫅ ⫆ ⫇ ⫈ ⫉ ⫊ ⫋ ⫌ ⫍ ⫎ ⫏ ⫐ ⫑ ⫒ ⫓ ⫔ ⫕ ⫖ ⫗ ⫘ ⫙ ⫷ ⫸ ⫹ ⫺ ⊢ ⊣;
  2. All symbols in point 1, preceded by a dot (.) to be made elementwise;
  3. The operators <:, >:, .!, and in, which cannot be preceded by a dot (.).

Not all of these have a definition in the standard Base library. However, they are available for other packages to define and use as appropriate.

In everyday use, most of these comparison operators are not relevant. The most common ones used are the standard mathematical functions for ordering; see the Syntax section for a list.

Like most other operators in Julia, comparison operators are functions and can be called as functions. For instance, (<)(1, 2) is identical in meaning to 1 < 2.
