Class

String

Name

equals()

Examples
String str1 = "CCCP";
String str2 = "CCCP";
// Tests to see if 'str1' is equal to 'str2'
if (str1.equals(str2) == true) {
  println("Equal");  // They are equal, so this line will print
} else {
  println("Not equal");  // This line will not print
}
Description Compares two strings to see if they are the same. This method is necessary because it's not possible to compare strings using the equality operator (==). Returns true if the strings are the same and false if they are not.
Syntax
str.equals(str)
Parameters
str String: any valid String
