Thread: logic help: Check if 3 currency types are larger than another set of 3

1. logic help: Check if 3 currency types are larger than another set of 3

I need help checking against user input for gold, silver, and copper

ex:
current price is 5g, 0s, 0c
offered price is 4g, 9999999s, 99999c

the user's offer should be rejected.

2. You could pad the silver and copper values with 0's, then join all parts together to test for the greater integer?

\$s = str_pad(\$s, 2, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT);
\$c = str_pad(\$c, 2, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT);

i.e.

5g, 0s, 0c would become 5g, 00s, 00c, which becomes 50000, which is greater than 49999.

Or something like that. =)

3. what about if the silver and copper offer were 999999999999

Then, my answer looks stupid because you just changed/edited your original question.

=)

Without going into some sort of extended rant, the only other way I can think of is to use a complex set of if statements.

Not particularly elegant though.

5. sorry about that Lucas Chan

i just thought about my "9999999" question and it wouldn't realistically make any sence (999999 silver should be > 1 gold).

maybe =\$g+\$s/100+\$c/1000 will work if it takes 100s = 1g and 1000c = 1g

Edit:

maybe not (4,99,99 is 5.089)

Edit:

oops, it'a actually 10,000c = 1g so it'll work out fine

1 + 1/100 + 1/10000
