Compares two character sequences.

1) The length rlen of the sequences to compare is the smaller of size() and v.size(). The function compares the two views by calling traits::compare(data(), v.data(), rlen), and returns a value according to the following table:
Condition Result Return value
Traits::compare(data(), v.data(), rlen) < 0 this is less than v <0
Traits::compare(data(), v.data(), rlen) == 0 size() < v.size() this is less than v <0
size() == v.size() this is equal to v 0
size() > v.size() this is greater than v >0
Traits::compare(data(), v.data(), rlen) > 0 this is greater than v >0
2) Equivalent to substr(pos1, count1).compare(v).
3) Equivalent to substr(pos1, count1).compare(v.substr(pos2, count2)).
4) Equivalent to compare(basic_string_view(s)).
5) Equivalent to substr(pos1, count1).compare(basic_string_view(s)).
6) Equivalent to substr(pos1, count1).compare(basic_string_view(s, count2)).

[edit] Parameters

v - view to compare
s - pointer to the character string to compare to
count1 - number of characters of this view to compare
pos1 - position of the first character in this view to compare
count2 - number of characters of the given view to compare
pos2 - position of the first character of the given view to compare

[edit] Return value

negative value if this view is less than the other character sequence, zero if the both character sequences are equal, positive value if this view is greater than the other character sequence.

[edit] Exceptions

1)
noexcept specification:  
noexcept
  

[edit] Complexity

1) Linear in the number of characters compared.
