url_view_base::operator<

Return the result of comparing two URLs.

Synopsis

Defined in header <boost/url/url_view_base.hpp>

friend bool
operator<(
    url_view_base const& u0,
    url_view_base const& u1);
Description

The URLs are compared component by component as if they were first normalized.

Example
url_view u0( "http://www.a.com/index.htm" );
url_view u1( "http://www.b.com/index.htm" );
assert( u0 < u1 );
Effects
url a(u0);
a.normalize();
url b(u1);
b.normalize();
return std::make_tuple(
           a.scheme(),
           a.user(),
           a.password(),
           a.host(),
           a.port(),
           a.path(),
           a.query(),
           a.fragment()) <
       std::make_tuple(
           b.scheme(),
           b.user(),
           b.password(),
           b.host(),
           b.port(),
           b.path(),
           b.query(),
           b.fragment());
Complexity

Linear in min( u0.size(), u1.size() )

Exception Safety

Throws nothing

Return Value

true if u0 < u1

Specification

Convenience header <boost/url.hpp>
