00:00 | In this PHP tutorial, we will learn about Comparison Operators. |
00:05 | Comparison operators can compare 2 values, 2 strings or 2 variables that can contain any of them and will act upon that. |
00:15 | For this, I am going to use an if statement. |
00:19 | Let's start by creating the if statement structure. |
00:25 | My condition is if 1==1, |
00:30 | echo |
00:33 | True |
00:37 | and then else |
00:42 | echo |
00:44 | False. Remember, I don't need these brackets; so I'm going to take them out. |
00:51 | Let's indent it. |
00:56 | Never mind the indenting. |
00:59 | This is the first comparison operator. |
01:02 | Two 'equals to' (==) means the 'comparison operator'. We've seen this in the if statement before. |
01:08 | 1 does equal to 1; so this will echo "True". Let's try it. |
01:13 | We got True. |
01:15 | Let me change this. if 1 is greater than 1 (1>1) then let's see what result we get. |
01:27 | False, because 1 is equal to 1 and not greater than 1. |
01:33 | Now let's change this to 1 greater than or equal to 1 (1>=1). |
01:37 | if 1 greater than or equal to 1, echo "True" else echo "False". |
01:45 | Here, we should get True. |
01:48 | You can also do the same with 'less than or equal to'. So, for example: less than (<) |
01:55 | would be False, less than or equal to (<=) would be True. |
02:01 | We can also say 'not equal'. So, if 1 is not equal to 1 (1!=1) echo True. |
02:11 | Refresh. We'll get False here because 1 is equal to 1. Now let's say if 1 isn't equal to 2 (1!=2). |
02:20 | We get True because 1 is not equal to 2. |
02:25 | These are the basic comparison operators that you will be using for our tutorials. |
02:33 | Expand on this - practice them - and you'll understand them better. |
02:40 | You can also compare variables using these operators. So for example: num1 = 1, |
02:48 | num2 = 2. All we now do is, replace these values and there we go. |
03:01 | This will produce exactly the same result as we've got earlier which is True. Now all we need to do is, change these values. |
03:11 | Please note, this will now read as num1 = 1, num2 = 1. So if 'num1' doesn't equal 1 it is "False" because 1 does equal 1 therefore we get False. |
03:24 | These here are the simple comparison operators. Play around with them. See what you can do. Thanks for watching. |
