I'm trying to make a "rock, paper, scissors" game in Python and i want to set one variable to be greater then the other one.

something like:

paper > rock scissors > paper rock > scissors 

how could i do it..?

 


Yes as Daniel said, with the override of __cmp__ you can acheive this :

class Comparable(object):     def __init__(self, below_class, above_class):         self.above_class = above_class         self.below_class = below_class      def __cmp__(self, other):         if isinstance(other, self.below_class):             return 1         if isinstance(other, self.above_class):             return -1         return 0  class Paper(Comparable):     pass  class Rock(Comparable):     pass  class Scissors(Comparable):     pass  scissors = Scissors(Paper, Rock) paper = Paper(Rock, Scissors) rock = Rock(Scissors, Paper)  # True  print paper > rock print scissors > paper print rock > scissors  # False  print paper < rock print scissors < paper print rock < scissors 

The documentation on the way this works is available here : https://docs.python.org/2.6/reference/datamodel.html#object.cmp
