Re: What is the best way to compare variables so that different types are non-equal?by LanX (Canon)
|on Jul 19, 2009 at 15:41 UTC||Need Help??|
eq is supposed to "ignore types" it's just comparing the stringified arguments
eq: Binary "eq" returns true if the left argument is stringwise equal to the right argument.
so two arguments mapped to the same string are "equal".
I think you want something like === in JS¹, IMHO you have to construct this on your own.
UPDATE: repaired broken link to [doc://eq]
(¹) an approach with operator overloading can be found here:
