The = Function: Equal To

Monadic (One-Argument) Form

There is no monadic form.

Dyadic (Two-Argument) Form: Equal To A=B

The equal to function result is 1 when the value of argument A equals the value

of argument B; otherwise, the result is 0. The arguments (numeric or character)

can be scalars, vectors, or other arrays. The arguments must be the same shape,

unless one of the arguments is a scalar or any single-element array. Arguments

of the same shape have the same shape result:

If one argument is a scalar or a single-element array, the shape of the result is the

same as that of the other argument. The single element is applied to every element

of the multielement array.

Nore: If the arguments are numeric, the result of the = function depends on the

OCT system variable (see Chapter 5 for information on the OCT system variable).
