fun lt(block: Expression.ExpressionBuilder.() -> Unit): Expression

Returns true if the first input is strictly less than the second, false otherwise. The arguments are required to be either both strings or both numbers; if during evaluation they are not, expression evaluation produces an error. Cases where this constraint is known not to hold at parse time are considered in valid and will produce a parse error. Accepts an optional collator argument to control locale-dependent string comparisons.
