Arguments

e1, e2

character vectors or objects coercible to character vectors

Details

These functions call stri_cmp_le or its friends, using the default collator options. As a consequence, they are vectorized over e1 and e2.

%stri==% tests for canonical equivalence of strings (see stri_cmp_equiv) and is a locale-dependent operation.

%stri===% performs a locale-independent, code point-based comparison.

Value

All the functions return a logical vector indicating the result of a pairwise comparison. As usual, the elements of shorter vectors are recycled if necessary.
