Lua Programming/How to Lua/comparative operator

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.

Operator Description
== equality
~= inequality
< lessthan
> greaterthan
<= 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
