Description

The GT function returns true if each specified value is greater than the ones following it, and false otherwise. The function takes one or more arguments; it always returns true if it has a single argument.

Types have an order of precedence. When comparing values of different types, they are ranked in the following order, from least to greatest.

  1. Number (integers and decimals: 0.5 < 1 < 1.5 < 2)

  2. Byte

  3. String

  4. Array (ordered lexically, like strings)

  5. Object (ordered lexically, like strings)

  6. Reference

  7. Timestamp

  8. Date

  9. Boolean (false < true)

  10. Null

This means that any Array is always greater than any Number.

Parameters

Argument Type Definition and Requirements

value

Any

A value to be compared.

Returns

A boolean value.

Examples

The query below returns true because the value 3 is greater than the value 2, and the value 2 is greater than the value 1.

client.Query(GT(3, 2, 1));
true
curl https://db.fauna.com/ \
    -u fnAChGwBcAACAO70ziE0cfROosNJHdgBmJU1PgpL: \
    -d '{ "gt": [ 3, 2, 1 ] }'
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
{ "resource": true }
result, _ := client.Query(f.GT(3, 2, 1))

fmt.Println(result)
true
System.out.println(
        client.query(GT(Value(3), Value(2), Value(1)))
        .get());
true
client.query(q.GT(3, 2, 1))
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
true
client.query(q.gt(3, 2, 1))
true
client.query(GT(3, 2, 1))
true
