template< class T = void >

(since C++14)

Function object for performing comparisons. Unless specialized, invokes operator> on type T.

Contents

[edit] Specializations

If the built-in operator> does not provide total order for pointers, a partial specialization of std::greater for pointer types is provided, which guarantees total order.

The standard library provides a specialization of std::greater when T is not specified, which leaves the parameter types and return type to be deduced.

[edit] Member functions

operator()
checks if the first argument is greater than the second
(public member function)


std::greater::operator()

bool operator()( const T& lhs, const T& rhs ) const;
(until C++14)
constexpr bool operator()( const T& lhs, const T& rhs ) const;
(since C++14)

Checks whether lhs is greater than rhs.

Parameters

lhs, rhs - values to compare

Return value

true if lhs > rhs, false otherwise.

Exceptions

(none)

Possible implementation

constexpr bool operator()(const T &lhs, const T &rhs) const 
{
    return lhs > rhs;
}
