LLt Intrinsic

     LLt(String_A, String_B)

LLt: LOGICAL(KIND=1) function.

String_A: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

String_B: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Intrinsic groups: (standard FORTRAN 77).


Returns .TRUE. if String_A.LT.String_B, .FALSE. otherwise. String_A and String_B are interpreted as containing ASCII character codes. If either value contains a character not in the ASCII character set, the result is processor dependent.

If the String_A and String_B are not the same length, the shorter is compared as if spaces were appended to it to form a value that has the same length as the longer.

See LGe Intrinsic, for information on the distinction between the LLT intrinsic and the .LT. operator.
