Compares each element in the lefthand argument with the corresponding element in the righthand argument. If an element in the lefthand argument is greater than the corresponding righthand element, the result of that comparison is 1. Otherwise it is 0. (This operation is affected by 12 > 1 1 2 > 12 0 12 > 12 0 11 7 2 5 > 11 3 2 6 (Compares each element in a vector with 0 1 0 0 the corresponding element in a vector of equal length) ¯3 > ¯4 (Compares negative numbers. The number 1 nearer 0 is considered the greater.) 8 > 2+2+2+2 (The right argument is evaluated 0 before the comparison is made) TABLE ← 2 3 ⍴ 1 2 3 4 5 6 MABLE ← 2 3 ⍴ 3 3 3 5 5 5 TABLE > MABLE (Compares each element in a matrix 0 0 0 with the corresponding element in 0 0 1 a matrix of equal size and dimensions) 3>TABLE 1 1 0 0 0 0 3 > TABLE MABLE (Compares 3 with the elements of the 1 1 0 0 0 0 nested vector) 0 0 0 0 0 0
