|Description:||Determines if a string is lexically greater than or equal to another string, based on the ASCII collating sequence, even if the processor's default collating sequence is different. In Compaq Fortran, LGE is equivalent to the >= operator.|
|Class:||Elemental function; Generic|
|Arguments:||STRING_A||Must be of type character.|
|STRING_B||Must be of type character.|
result is of type default logical. If the strings are of unequal
length, the comparison is made as if the shorter string were
extended on the right with blanks, to the length of the longer
The result is true if the strings are equal, both strings are of zero length, or if STRING_A follows STRING_B in the ASCII collating sequence; otherwise, the result is false.

LGE ( 'ONE', 'SIX' ) has the value false.
