"=", ASCII character 61.Common names: ITU-T: equals; gets; takes. Rare: quadrathorpe; INTERCAL: half-mesh.Equals is used in many languages as the assignment operator though earlier languages used ":=" ("becomes equal to") to avoid upsetting mathematicians with statements such as "x = x+1". It is also used in compounds such as "=", "==", "/=", "!=" for various comparison operators and in C's "+=", "*=" etc. which mimic the primitive operations of two-address code.(1995-03-29)

In other words, two lists are defined to be equal if they contain the same elements in the same order. this implementation first checks if the specified object is this list. If so, it returns ; if not, it checks if the specified object is a list. If not, it returns ; if so, it iterates over both lists, comparing corresponding pairs of elements. If any comparison returns , this method returns . If either iterator runs out of elements before the other it returns (as the lists are of unequal length); otherwise it returns when the iterations complete.Specified by:  equals in interface List Overrides: equals in class Object Parameters: o - the object to be compared for equality with this list.Returns: true if the specified object is equal to this list.

- method in interface java.util.Comparator  public boolean equals (Object  obj)Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this Comparator. this method must obey the general contract of Object.equals(Object). Additionally, this method can return trueonly if the specified object is also a comparator and it imposes the same ordering as this comparator. Thus, comp1.equals(comp2) implies that sgn(comp1.compare(o1, o2))==sgn(comp2.compare(o1, o2)) for every object reference o1 and o2. note that it is safe to override . However, overriding this method may, in some cases, improve performance by allowing programs to determine that two distinct comparators impose the same order.Overrides: equals in class Object Parameters: obj - the reference object with which to compare.Returns: true only if the specified object is also a comparator and it imposes the same ordering as this comparator.See Also:  Object.equals(java.lang.Object) , Object.hashCode()

- method in class java.util.BitSet  public boolean equals (Object  obj)Compares this object against the specified object. the result is true if and only if the argument is not null and is a Bitset object that has exactly the same set of bits set to true as this bit set. that is, for every nonnegative int index k, ((BitSet)obj).get(k) == this.get(k) must be true. the current sizes of the two bit sets are not compared. overrides the equals method of Object.Overrides: equals in class Object Parameters: obj - the object to compare with.Returns: true if the objects are the same; false otherwise.See Also:  size()

- method in class java.util.Locale  public boolean equals (Object  obj)Returns true if this locale is equal to another object. A locale is deemed equal to another locale with identical language, country, and variant, and unequal to all other objects.Overrides: equals in class Object Returns: true if this locale is equal to the specified object.

- method in interface java.util.Collection  public boolean equals (Object  o)Compares the specified object with this collection for equality. while the interface adds no stipulations to the general contract for the , programmers who implement the interface "directly" (in other words, create a class that is a but is not a or a ) must exercise care if they choose to override the . It is not necessary to do so, and the simplest course of action is to rely on 's implementation, but the implementer may wish to implement a "value comparison" in place of the default "reference comparison." (The and interfaces mandate such value comparisons.) the general contract for the method states that equals must be symmetric (in other words, if and only if ). the contracts for and state that lists are only equal to other lists, and sets to other sets. Thus, a custom method for a collection class that implements neither the nor interface must return when this collection is compared to any list or set. (By the same logic, it is not possible to write a class that correctly implements both the and interfaces.)Overrides: equals in class Object Parameters: o - object to be compared for equality with this collection.Returns: true if the specified object is equal to this collectionSee Also:  Object.equals(Object) , Set.equals(Object) , List.equals(Object)
