The lua programming language provides a set of comparative operators. The comparative operators are used to determine equality or inequality or otherwise make comparisons of numeric or string values, and produce a boolean truth based on the result. In lua, all values are true, except nil and false.
|<=||less than or equal to|
|>=||greater than or equal to|
Coercion does not take place for comparative operatorsEdit
print ("9" > 8) -- coercion does not take place for comparative operators
