Compares each value within the numeric array with another value.
1) Returns a numeric array of bool containing elements each of which is obtained by applying the indicated comparison operator to the corresponding values of lhs and rhs
The behavior is undefined if size() != v.size()
2) Returns a numeric array of bool containing elements each of which is obtained by applying the indicated comparison operator to lhsv and the corresponding value of rhs .
3) Returns a numeric array of bool containing elements each of which is obtained by applying the indicated comparison operator to the corresponding value of lhs and rhsv.

Parameters


lhs, rhs - numeric arrays to compare
lhsv, rhsv - values to compare to each element within a numeric array

Return value


A numeric array of bool containing comparison results of corresponding elements.

Exceptions


(none)

Notes


Each of the operators can only be instantiated if the following requirements are met:


      * The indicated operator can be applied to type T
      * The result value can be unambiguously converted to bool.


The function can be implemented with the return type different from std::valarray. In this case, the replacement type has the following properties:


      * All const member functions of std::valarray are provided.
      * std::valarray, std::slice_array, std::gslice_array, std::mask_array and std::indirect_array can be constructed from the replacement type.
      * All functions accepting an argument of type const std::valarray&
        except begin() and end()
        (since C++11) should also accept the replacement type.
      * All functions accepting two arguments of type const std::valarray& should accept every combination of const std::valarray& and the replacement type.
      * The return type does not add more than two levels of template nesting over the most deeply-nested argument type.


Defect reports


The following behavior-changing defect reports were applied retroactively to previously published C++ standards.


DR Applied to Behavior as published Correct behavior
LWG_3074 C++98 T is deduced from both the scalar and the valarray for (2-3), disallowing mixed-type calls only deduce T from the valarray

Example


// Run this code


  #include <iostream>
  #include <valarray>


  int main()
  {
      // zero all negatives in a valarray
      std::valarray<int> v = {1, -1, 0, -3, 10, -1, -2};
      std::cout << "Before: ";
      for(auto n: v) std::cout << n << ' '; std::cout << '\n';
      v[v < 0] = 0;
      std::cout << "After: ";
      for(auto n: v) std::cout << n << ' '; std::cout << '\n';


      // convert the valarray<bool> result of == to a single bool
      std::valarray<int> a = {1,2,3};
      std::valarray<int> b = {2,4,6};


      std::cout << "2*a == b is " << std::boolalpha
                << (2*a == b).min() << '\n';


  }

Output:


  Before: 1 -1 0 -3 10 -1 -2
  After: 1 0 0 0 10 0 0
  2*a == b is true
