JavaScript String localeCompare() method

The localeCompare() method in JavaScript is used to compare two strings in the current locale. This method takes a single argument, which is the string to compare with the original string. The localeCompare() method returns a number indicating whether the original string comes before, after, or is the same as the string being compared to.

Here is an example of how the localeCompare() method works:

const string1 = 'Hello, world!';
const string2 = 'hello, world!';

const result = string1.localeCompare(string2);

// the result will be: 1

In the code example above, we first declare two strings called string1 and string2 that contain the text Hello, world! and hello, world!, respectively. We then use the localeCompare() method to compare the string1 and string2 strings in the current locale. The localeCompare() method takes a single argument, which is the string to compare with the original string. In this case, we pass in the string2 string as the argument to the localeCompare() method.

As a result of calling the localeCompare() method, the result variable will be set to 1, indicating that the string1 string comes after the string2 string in the current locale. If the string1 string came before the string2 string, the result variable would be set to -1. If the two strings were the same, the result variable would be set to 0.
