pub fn eq<T>(a: *const T, b: *const T) -> bool where T: ?Sized,
Compare raw pointers for equality.
This is the same as using the
== operator, but less generic: the arguments have to be
*const T raw pointers, not anything that implements
This can be used to compare
&T references (which coerce to
*const T implicitly) by their address rather than comparing the values they point to (which is what the
PartialEq for &T implementation does).
use std::ptr; let five = 5; let other_five = 5; let five_ref = &five; let same_five_ref = &five; let other_five_ref = &other_five; assert!(five_ref == same_five_ref); assert!(five_ref == other_five_ref); assert!(ptr::eq(five_ref, same_five_ref)); assert!(!ptr::eq(five_ref, other_five_ref));
