std::ranges::greater: std::ranges::greater


std::ranges::greater - std::ranges::greater


Defined in header <functional>
struct greater; (since C++20)

Function object for performing comparisons. Deduces the parameter types of the function call operator from the arguments (but not the return type).

operator() (public member function)


template< class T, class U >
requires StrictTotallyOrderedWith<T, U> ||
/* std::declval<T>() < std::declval<U>() resolves to
a built-in operator comparing pointers */
constexpr bool operator()(T&& t, U&& u) const;

Compares t and u. Equivalent to return ranges::less{}(std::forward<U>(u), std::forward<T>(t));.


Unlike std::greater, std::ranges::greater requires all six comparison operators <, <=, >, >=, == and != to be valid (via the StrictTotallyOrderedWith constraint) and is entirely defined in terms of std::ranges::less. However, the implementation is free to use operator> directly, because those concepts require the results of the comparison operators to be consistent.
