# 1.0.0[−][src]Enum core::cmp::Ordering

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);Run

## 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].

## Methods

`impl Ordering`

[src]

`pub fn reverse(self) -> Ordering`

[src]

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);Run

This method can be used to reverse a comparison:

let mut 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);Run

`pub fn then(self, other: Ordering) -> Ordering`

1.17.0[src]

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);Run

`pub fn then_with<F: FnOnce() -> Ordering>(self, f: F) -> Ordering`

1.17.0[src]

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);Run
