<= — Determines if one value is less than or equal to another.

In the above conditional, *a* and *b* are first compared. If the indicated relation is true (*a* less than or equal to *b*), then the conditional expression has the value of *v1*; if the relation is false, the expression has the value of *v2*.

NB.: If *v1* or *v2* are expressions, these will be evaluated before the conditional is determined.

In terms of binding strength, all conditional operators (i.e. the relational operators (*<*, etc.), and *?*, and *:* ) are weaker than the arithmetic and logical operators (*+*, *-*, ***, */*, *&&* and *||*).

These are *operators* not *opcodes*. Therefore, they can be used within orchestra statements, but do not form complete statements themselves.

Here is an example of the <= operator. It uses the file *lessequal.csd*.

**Example 26. Example of the <= operator.**

See the sections *Real-time Audio* and *Command Line Flags* for more information on using command line flags.
