[REBOL] Re: Pair comparison (was: native? :==)

From: chalz:earthlink at: 5-Feb-2002 12:28

There's always the case to evaluate for area; whichever coordinate pair would take up the most area in a plane, that would be the greater one. If they take up the same, then obviously (2x3 > 3x2) would fail - because it's equal area. It's one solution :/ --Charles ****

Pairs also represent size. If you only compare X then this falls apart when dealing with size. Which is greater 5x1 or 3x2 ??
