SafeEquals

Compares two numbers to determine whether they are equal.

template<typename T, typename U>
inline bool SafeEquals (
   const T t,
   const U u
) throw ();

[in] t

The first number to compare. This must be of type T.

[in] u

The second number to compare. This must be of type U.

true if t and u are equal; otherwise false.

The method enhances == because SafeEquals enables you to compare two different types of numbers.

This method is part of SafeInt Library and is designed for a single comparison operation without creating an instance of the SafeInt Class.

NoteNote

This method should only be used when a single mathematical operation must be protected. If there are multiple operations, you should use the SafeInt class instead of calling the individual stand-alone functions.

For more information about the template types T and U, see SafeInt Functions.
