CompareNumbersMBS(v1 as Variant, v2 as Variant) as Integer
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Targets
global method New MBS DataTypes Plugin 20.5 Yes Yes Yes All
Function: Compares numbers.
Example:
Dim u As UInt64 = 12345678901234567890
Dim i As Int64 = -1

If u > i Then
Break // 12345678901234567890 > -1
Else
Break // xojo says it's smaller!
End If

If CompareNumbersMBS(u,i) > 0 Then
Break // Plugin does it right
Else
Break
End If
Notes:
The goal: compare numbers better than Xojo.
Especially UInt64/Int64 edge cases.

We treat nil as 0 value and ptr as UInt64.
If first argument is string, we just compare both as string. If first argument is numeric and second argument is string, we convert second one to number.
