LSS is a 'Less Than' comparison operator for the IF command
C:\> If "abc" LSS "def" ECHO In Alphabetic order
In Alphabetic order
C:\> If 5 LSS 100 ECHO Smaller number found

LSS will perform a numeric comparison where possible, if you need a string comparison use the == comparison operator.
In addition to integer numbers, hex and octal numbers can also be compared within certain limits.
