# `>` Greater than

Compares each element in the left-hand argument with the corresponding element in the right-hand argument. If an element in the left-hand argument is greater than the corresponding right-hand element, the result of that comparison is 1. Otherwise it is 0. (This operation is affected by `⎕CT,` the comparison tolerance)

equal length)
¯3 > ¯4                 (Compares negative numbers. The number
1                              nearer 0 is considered the greater.)

0                              before the comparison is made)
