Compares two shared_ptr<T> objects or compares shared_ptr<T> with a null pointer.
Note that the comparison operators for shared_ptr simply compare pointer values; the actual objects pointed to are not compared. Having operator< defined for shared_ptr allows shared_ptrs to be used as keys in associative containers, like std::map and std::set.

Parameters


lhs - the left-hand shared_ptr to compare
rhs - the right-hand shared_ptr to compare

Return value


1) lhs.get() == rhs.get()
2) !(lhs == rhs)
3) std::less<V>()(lhs.get(), rhs.get()), where V is the composite_pointer_type of std::shared_ptr<T>::element_type* and std::shared_ptr<U>::element_type*
4) rhs < lhs
5) !(rhs < lhs)
6) !(lhs < rhs)
7) !lhs
8) !rhs
9) (bool)lhs
10) (bool)rhs
11) std::less<std::shared_ptr<T>::element_type*>()(lhs.get(), nullptr)
12) std::less<std::shared_ptr<T>::element_type*>()(nullptr, rhs.get())
13) nullptr < lhs
14) rhs < nullptr
15) !(nullptr < lhs)
16) !(rhs < nullptr)
17) !(lhs < nullptr)
18) !(nullptr < rhs)

Notes


In all cases, it is the stored pointer (the one returned by get()) that is compared, rather than the managed pointer (the one passed to the deleter when use_count goes to zero). The two pointers may differ in a shared_ptr created using the aliasing constructor.
