Expand description

An Ordering is the result of a comparison between two values.

Examples

use std::cmp::Ordering;

let result = 1.cmp(&2);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Less, result);

let result = 1.cmp(&1);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Equal, result);

let result = 2.cmp(&1);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Greater, result);

Variants

Less

An ordering where a compared value is less than another.

Equal

An ordering where a compared value is equal to another.

Greater

An ordering where a compared value is greater than another.

Implementations

Returns true if the ordering is the Equal variant.

Examples
use std::cmp::Ordering;

assert_eq!(Ordering::Less.is_eq(), false);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Equal.is_eq(), true);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Greater.is_eq(), false);

Returns true if the ordering is not the Equal variant.

Examples
use std::cmp::Ordering;

assert_eq!(Ordering::Less.is_ne(), true);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Equal.is_ne(), false);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Greater.is_ne(), true);

Returns true if the ordering is the Less variant.

Examples
use std::cmp::Ordering;

assert_eq!(Ordering::Less.is_lt(), true);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Equal.is_lt(), false);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Greater.is_lt(), false);

Returns true if the ordering is the Greater variant.

Examples
use std::cmp::Ordering;

assert_eq!(Ordering::Less.is_gt(), false);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Equal.is_gt(), false);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Greater.is_gt(), true);

Returns true if the ordering is either the Less or Equal variant.

Examples
use std::cmp::Ordering;

assert_eq!(Ordering::Less.is_le(), true);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Equal.is_le(), true);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Greater.is_le(), false);

Returns true if the ordering is either the Greater or Equal variant.

Examples
use std::cmp::Ordering;

assert_eq!(Ordering::Less.is_ge(), false);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Equal.is_ge(), true);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Greater.is_ge(), true);

Reverses the Ordering.

  • Less becomes Greater.
  • Greater becomes Less.
  • Equal becomes Equal.
Examples

Basic behavior:

use std::cmp::Ordering;

assert_eq!(Ordering::Less.reverse(), Ordering::Greater);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Equal.reverse(), Ordering::Equal);
assert_eq!(Ordering::Greater.reverse(), Ordering::Less);

This method can be used to reverse a comparison:

let data: &mut [_] = &mut [2, 10, 5, 8];

// sort the array from largest to smallest.
data.sort_by(|a, b| a.cmp(b).reverse());

let b: &mut [_] = &mut [10, 8, 5, 2];
assert!(data == b);

Chains two orderings.

Returns self when it’s not Equal. Otherwise returns other.

Examples
use std::cmp::Ordering;

let result = Ordering::Equal.then(Ordering::Less);
assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Less);

let result = Ordering::Less.then(Ordering::Equal);
assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Less);

let result = Ordering::Less.then(Ordering::Greater);
assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Less);

let result = Ordering::Equal.then(Ordering::Equal);
assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Equal);

let x: (i64, i64, i64) = (1, 2, 7);
let y: (i64, i64, i64) = (1, 5, 3);
let result = x.0.cmp(&y.0).then(x.1.cmp(&y.1)).then(x.2.cmp(&y.2));

assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Less);

Chains the ordering with the given function.

Returns self when it’s not Equal. Otherwise calls f and returns the result.

Examples
use std::cmp::Ordering;

let result = Ordering::Equal.then_with(|| Ordering::Less);
assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Less);

let result = Ordering::Less.then_with(|| Ordering::Equal);
assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Less);

let result = Ordering::Less.then_with(|| Ordering::Greater);
assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Less);

let result = Ordering::Equal.then_with(|| Ordering::Equal);
assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Equal);

let x: (i64, i64, i64) = (1, 2, 7);
let y: (i64, i64, i64) = (1, 5, 3);
let result = x.0.cmp(&y.0).then_with(|| x.1.cmp(&y.1)).then_with(|| x.2.cmp(&y.2));

assert_eq!(result, Ordering::Less);
