in reply to Disadvantage of using 'eq' operator to compare numbers.

If you want one to be equal to one, you want the numerical operators:
>perl -le"print 1 == '1.0' ?1:0" 1 >perl -le"print 1 eq '1.0' ?1:0" 0

If you want two to be less than ten, you want the numerical operators:

>perl -le"print 2 < 10 ?1:0" 1 >perl -le"print 2 lt 10 ?1:0" 0

    You've got a typo there... s/numerical/string/ (The examples still demonstrate it correctly.)

    The thinko was mine, not ikegami's. My comment was incorrect and adds nothing to the discussion; please reap.

[hippo]: Thanks for that. I had rather supposed that Nvidia had moved on over the last 15 years but apparently not so much.
