The following rules apply to relational operators. • Operands must be of compatible types, except that a real and an integer can be compared. • Strings are compared according to the ordering of the extended ASCII character set. Character types are treated as strings of length 1. • Two packed strings must have the same number of components to be compared. When a packed string with n components is compared to a string, the packed string is treated as a string of length n. • The operators <, >, <=, and >= apply to PChar operands only if the two pointers point within the same character array.
