LGE — Lexical greater than or equal#

LGE(STRING_A, STRING_B)#

Determines whether one string is lexically greater than or equal to another string, where the two strings are interpreted as containing ASCII character codes. 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.

Parameters:
  • STRING_A – Shall be of default CHARACTER type.

  • STRING_B – Shall be of default CHARACTER type.

Returns:

Returns .TRUE. if STRING_A >= STRING_B, and .FALSE. otherwise, based on the ASCII ordering.
