C++ <forward_list> - operator> Function



The C++ <forward_list> operator> function is used to check whether the first forward_list is greater than the second forward_list or not. It returns true if the first forward_list is greater than the second forward_list, else returns false. operator> compares elements of forward_lists sequentially and stops comparison after first mismatch.

Syntax

template <class T, class Alloc>
bool operator> (const forward_list<T,Alloc>& lhs, const forward_list<T,Alloc>& rhs);

Parameters

lhs First forward_list.
rhs Second forward_list.

Return Value

Returns true if the contents of lhs are lexicographically greater than the contents of rhs, else returns false.

Time Complexity

Linear i.e, Θ(n).

Example:

In the example below, the operator> function is used to check whether the first forward_list is greater than the second forward_list or not.

#include <iostream>
#include <forward_list>
using namespace std;
 
int main (){
  forward_list<int> flist1 {10, 20, 30};
  forward_list<int> flist2 {10, 20, 30};
  forward_list<int> flist3 {0, 10, 20};

  if (flist1 > flist2)
    cout<<"flist1 is greater than flist2.\n";
  else
    cout<<"flist1 is not greater than flist2.\n";

  if (flist1 > flist3)
    cout<<"flist1 is greater than flist3.\n";
  else
    cout<<"flist1 is not greater than flist3.\n";
    
  return 0;
}

The output of the above code will be:

flist1 is not greater than flist2.
flist1 is greater than flist3.
