isequal

objects comparison

Calling Sequence

t=isequal(a,b)
t=isequal(a,b,..)

Arguments

a, b , ...

variables of any types

t

boolean

Description

isequal compares its arguments. If all of them are equal then the function returns %t and in the other case it returns %f.

When comparing lists, structures,... the comparison is made recursively, the order of the fields matters.

Floating point data are compared according to IEEE rule, i.e. NaN values are not equal. See isequalbitwise for bitwise comparisons.

Examples

a=[1 2]
isequal(a,[1 2])
isequal(a,1)

• isequalbitwise — bitwise comparison of variables
• equal — (=) assignment , comparison, equal sign
• less — (<) less than comparison
