Compareto

The CompareTo method is found in the .NET Framework and Java and imposes the natural ordering of a class

Equals

Refers to Java equals method, indicating whether some object is "equal to" this one.

Bigger lesser numbers

Quality Example
Bigger

"We can call its compareto method to decide whether it is bigger than equals to or less than any int"

from question "C# What is the advantage of using interfaces for simulating multiple inheritance?"

Greater

"You need to call the compareto method which will indicate the result of the comparison by returning an integer less than greater than or equals to 0"

from question "Comparing Generics"

"I am using the compareto method in java to try and check if a certain date is greater than or equals than 24 hours after another date"

from question "Check if one date is exactly 24 hours or more after another"

"The compareto method returns 1 0 or -1 depending on whether value a is respectively greater than equals to or lesser than value b"

from question "Comparing elements in a linked list"

Greater less

"The only significance of a compareto return value is if it is greater less than or equals to zero"

from question "Arraylist and InsertionSort Object"

Less

"Compareto returns a negative integer zero or a positive integer as this object is less than equals to or greater than the specified object"

from question "Why compareTo() has its own implemented body while Comparable is an interface?"

"The interface defines one method compareto that must return a negative integer zero or a positive integer if this object is less than equals to or greater than the other object respectively"

from question "List to TreeSet conversion produces: "java.lang.ClassCastException: MyClass cannot be cast to java.lang.Comparable""

"Compareto compares values and returns an int which tells if the values compare less than equals or greater than"

from question "What is a practical application of Java's compareTo method?"

"You should be using compareto method for less than or equals or greater than"

from question "How to convert from Date(10-Oct-2014 00:00:00) to String in Java"

"Is a generic type at compile time java will require that an instance provide an implementation of int compareto t o which from the javadoc returns a negative integer zero or a positive integer as this object is less than equals to or greater than the specified object"

from question "Remove item from comparable array"

"With this rather than needing to implement a comparator all you need to implement is the int compareto class o method in the class which returns a negative integer zero or a positive integer as this object is less than equals to or greater than the specified object."

from question "Java Priority Queue Sorting"

"The compareto method returns one of -1 0 1 depending on whether or not the argument is less than equals to or greater than respectively"

from question "Why does order of testing change testing results?"

"In the compareto method you can then write the code which will call the getters for the year month and so on until it figures out whether the current object is less than equals to or greater than the object o being passed into the compareto method"

from question "Sort arraylist in ascending order"

"In the compareto method you can decide which fields are used for the comparison greater less than or equals"

from question "How to order nodes in a tree based on their string data?"

"This interface defines the method compareto t which will return a negative number zero or a positive number if the first object is less than equals to or greater than the other one respectively"

from question "Learning managed C++ generics"

"Icomparable declares the compareto method which returns an integer that specifies a less than equals to or greater than relationship between two objects of the same type"

from question "Delegates vs Interfaces in C#"

"I know that in java there is a compareto method that you can write in a class that will compare two variables and return a value -1 1 or 0 signifing greater than less than and equals to operations"

from question "Is there a CompareTo method in C++ similar to Java where you can use > < = operations on a data type"

"According to javadoc compareto needs to return a negative integer zero or a positive integer as this object is less than equals to or greater than the specified object"

from question "Sorting csv file by one field"

"Or is it compareto returns negative numbers 0 and positive numbers respectively indicating whether the calling object is less than equals to or greater than the specified object"

from question "Java: What are the compareTo interface semantics?"

"Compareto return a negative integer zero or a positive integer as this object is less than equals to or greater than the specified object"

from question "Regarding String comparision"

"Compareto method returns a negative integer zero or a positive integer as this object is less than equals to or greater than the specified object"

from question "Searching on sorted linked list"

Others

Quality Example
Worse

"When one of the strings is a prefix of another the performance of compareto is worse as it still needs to determine the lexicographical ordering while equals won t worry any more and return false immediately"

from question "Java Strings: compareTo() vs. equals()"

Once much slower

"Most likely hashcode will be faster unless for whatever reason calling hashcode + equals once is much slower than calling compareto log n times"

from question "Java: What collection type should I use for this case?"

Less

"I am using the min value because i read that the compareto method returns negative 0 or positive whether the first string is less than equals to or greater than the second"

from question "How to compute smallest string in ArrayList using Comparator?"

"And my guess as to why an element is being dropped is your compareto method never returns a 1 in any case so elements are always considered to be less than or equals to other elements which is probably screwing with the treeset"

from question "How to override compareTo (Java)"

"If this works it seems that u are still comparing the strings in your ordered list and u should now check if the return value of compareto is less grater equals to 0"

from question "How can I override compareTo method in a class I wrote to compare Strings stored in the class?"

"Per the page i linked to compareto returns a negative integer zero or a positive integer as this object is less than equals to or greater than the specified object."

from question "Sorting an ArrayList of objects using a custom sorting order"

"All i changed was the first compareto comparison to be less than instead of less than or equals to"

from question "Quicksort not completely sorting provided array"

"Compareto returns a number that is less than equals to or greater than zero corresponding to the first string being before the same as or after the second string respectively"

from question "CompareTo() getting true or false output"

"Implement compareto in temporary temporary.compareto left such that it returns a negative integer zero or a positive integer as temporary is less than equals to or greater than the left"

from question "How to compare two "Comparable" type variables in Java?"

"Note that in both cases you can take advantage of the fact that int also implements so you can use its compareto method to determine whether corresponding values in each instance of your class are less than equals to or greater than each other"

from question "Using IComparable to compare arrays"

"Compareto defines whether your base student is greater than less than or equals to your studenttocompare and you can define these with any criteria you please"
