SafeEquals

 

The new home for Visual Studio documentation is Visual Studio 2017 Documentation on docs.microsoft.com.

Compares two numbers to determine whether they are equal.

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

Parameters

[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.

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.
