API for generic.comparison - clojure-contrib v1.2 (stable)

by Konrad Hinsen

clojure-contrib is now deprecated

clojure-contrib is no longer being developed or maintained.

Rather than a single, monolithic, contributions library, Clojure now has a set of separate libraries for each unit of functionality. The libraries are in the Clojure GitHub organization at https://github.com/clojure. API documentation of the libraries can be found at http://clojure.github.io.

If you're looking for a specific function or namespace from the old clojure-contrib, see "Where Did Clojure.Contrib Go".


Full namespace name: clojure.contrib.generic.comparison

Overview

Generic comparison interface
This library defines generic versions of = < > <= >= zero?
as multimethods that can be defined for any type. Of the
greater/less-than relations, types must minimally implement >.

Public Variables and Functions



<

multimethod
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (< x)
       (< x y)
       (< x y & more)
Return true if each argument is smaller than the following ones.
The minimal implementation for type ::my-type is the binary form
with dispatch value [::my-type ::my-type]. A default implementation
is provided in terms of >.
Source


<=

multimethod
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (<= x)
       (<= x y)
       (<= x y & more)
Return true if each arguments is smaller than or equal to the following
ones. The minimal implementation for type ::my-type is the binary form
with dispatch value [::my-type ::my-type]. A default implementation
is provided in terms of >.
Source


=

multimethod
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (= x)
       (= x y)
       (= x y & more)
Return true if all arguments are equal. The minimal implementation for type
::my-type is the binary form with dispatch value [::my-type ::my-type].
Source


>

multimethod
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (> x)
       (> x y)
       (> x y & more)
Return true if each argument is larger than the following ones.
The minimal implementation for type ::my-type is the binary form
with dispatch value [::my-type ::my-type].
Source


>=

multimethod
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (>= x)
       (>= x y)
       (>= x y & more)
Return true if each argument is larger than or equal to the following
ones. The minimal implementation for type ::my-type is the binary form
with dispatch value [::my-type ::my-type]. A default implementation
is provided in terms of <.
Source


max

function
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (max x)
       (max x y)
       (max x y & more)
Returns the greatest of its arguments. Like clojure.core/max except that
is uses generic comparison functions implementable for any data type.
Source


min

function
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (min x)
       (min x y)
       (min x y & more)
Returns the least of its arguments. Like clojure.core/min except that
is uses generic comparison functions implementable for any data type.
Source


neg?

multimethod
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (neg? x)
Return true of x is negative.
Source


pos?

multimethod
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (pos? x)
Return true of x is positive.
Source


zero?

multimethod
This library, clojure-contrib, is deprecated. See here for more information.
Usage: (zero? x)
Return true of x is zero.
