Ruby Comparison Operators

There has been lots of questions on the comparison operators. So we yanked it for you..

OperatorDescriptionExample
== Checks if the value of two operands are equal or not, if yes then condition becomes true. (a == b) is not true.
!= Checks if the value of two operands are equal or not, if values are not equal then condition becomes true. (a != b) is true.
> Checks if the value of left operand is greater than the value of right operand, if yes then condition becomes true. (a > b) is not true.
< Checks if the value of left operand is less than the value of right operand, if yes then condition becomes true. (a < b) is true.
>= Checks if the value of left operand is greater than or equal to the value of right operand, if yes then condition becomes true. (a >= b) is not true.
<= Checks if the value of left operand is less than or equal to the value of right operand, if yes then condition becomes true. (a <= b) is true.
<=> Combined comparison operator. Returns 0 if first operand equals second, 1 if first operand is greater than the second and -1 if first operand is less than the second. (a <=> b) returns -1.
=== Used to test equality within a when clause of a case statement. (1…10) === 5 returns true.
.eql?True if the receiver and argument have both the same type and equal values. 1 == 1.0 returns true, but 1.eql?(1.0) is false.
equal?True if the receiver and argument have the same object id. 1 == 1.0 returns true, but 1.eql?(1.0) is false.
