Instance Method

isLessThanOrEqualTo(_:)

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether this instance is less than or equal to the given value.

Required.

Declaration

func isLessThanOrEqualTo(_ other: Self) -> Bool

Parameters

other

The value to compare with this value.

Return Value

true if other is greater than this value; otherwise, false. If either this value or other is NaN, the result of this method is false.

Discussion

This method serves as the basis for the less-than-or-equal-to operator (<=) for floating-point values. Some special cases apply:

  • Because NaN is incomparable with any value, this method returns false when called on NaN or when NaN is passed as other.

  • -infinity compares less than or equal to all values except NaN.

  • Every value except NaN compares less than or equal to +infinity.

    let x = 15.0 x.isLessThanOrEqualTo(20.0) // true x.isLessThanOrEqualTo(.nan) // false Double.nan.isLessThanOrEqualTo(x) // false

The isLessThanOrEqualTo(_:) method implements the less-than-or-equal predicate defined by the IEEE 754 specification.
