    ReQL command: <, lt

    Command syntax

    value.lt(value[, value, ...]) → bool

    value < value → bool

    Description

    Compare values, testing if the left-hand value is less than the right-hand.

    Example: Test if a player has scored less than 10 points.

    r.table('players').get(1)['score'].lt(10).run(conn)
    # alternative syntax
    (r.table('players').get(1)['score'] < 10).run(conn)
    

    Example: Test if variables are ordered from highest to lowest, with no values being equal to one another.

    a = 20
    b = 10
    c = 15
    r.lt(a, b, c).run(conn)
    

    This is the equivalent of the following:

    r.lt(a, b).and(r.lt(b, c)).run(conn)
