equalsA Function available in Arithmetic function

R = true, if value X equals value Y, otherwise R = false. The values are interpreted numerically, therefore the value 1.5 is the same as 1.50.

equals Function available in Boolean Function

Compares both Boolean values X and Y and returns true if both are equal, otherwise false. Non-Boolean values are interpreted as false (see above).

Use the functions equalsS or compare from the Text category to compare strings.

equalsS Function available in Text Function

R = true, if string X equals string Y, otherwise R = false
