 Main article: Comparison function
≤

Less than or Equal to (≤
) is a comparison function which tests whether the left argument is tolerantly less than or equal to the right argument, returning 1 if this is the case and 0 otherwise. It is the negation of Less than (<
), and in fact was called Not greater in APL\360.
Boolean function
When the arguments to Less than or Equal to are Boolean, it is the material implication Boolean function, also known as the IMPLY gate:
≤
0
1
0
1
1
1
0
1
In the context of logic, it can be read as implies.
Less than or Equal to Scan is an occasionally used pattern related to Less than Scan. While <\
changes all 1s after the first to 0, ≤\
changes all 0s after the first to 1. Thus ≤\A
~<\~A
.
≤\ 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0

≤\
appears in the FinnAPL idiom library as entry 350, "Not first zero".
