More Information


1. How should the relationship between cbot_item1, cbot_item2, and operator be interpreted?

Read it as item1 [operator] item2. So for example, item1 = item2 — is this statement true or false?

2. What is the min/max number that can be compared?

This comparison was NOT designed for scientific purposes and should be limited to common, every day comparisons. Whole numbers can safely be compared with a min/max value of +/- 9,007,199,254,740,991. When comparing numbers with decimals, do not use numbers with more than 5 decimal places and more than 12 significant digits otherwise the results may be unexpected. Here’s some very specific examples:

  • The plugin can determine that 99999999999999999.99999 is greater than 5
  • But it CANNOT determine that 99999999999999999.99999 is greater than 99999999999999999.99998

CodelessBot can reliably determine that 9999999.99999 is greater than 9999999.99998
