Problem:You have written a function like the following;
static Boolean IsV1GtV2
return v1 > v2;
And you get a compiler error stating;
Operator '>' cannot be applied to operands of type 'T' and 'T'
The error is reasonable, since there is no gurantee that some generic type T would support comparison.
The Following will Also Break
So next you could have tried.
return (int) v1 > (int) v2;
And you still cannot get that to work.
The only real way it works (for me at least) is to work the code this way.
if (typeof (T) == typeof (System.Int32))
return (int) (object) v1 > (int) (object) v2;
You wold, of course, need to add this type of block for every possible type that you plan to use.
