The equality operator
== compares only the types of the operands.
The equality operator '==' compares only the types of the operands
The equality operator '==' compares only the values of the operands
CorrectionHere is what's right.
The usual equality operator
== compares the values of its operands, allowing some implicit casts to happen.
For example, under these constraints
1 is equal to
true even though they are values of different types (respectively,
It would make no sense for this equality operator to claim that two values are equal when just their types match. It is pretty obvious that
1 is not equal to
2, even though they are both of type
OriginWhere could this misconception come from?
The confusion probably stems from knowing that there exist another operator for equality comparsion that behaves differently.
That operator is called strict equality operator because it also (but not only!) checks that the types of its operand match in order to return
