# SameAs

SameAs[y]

is an operator form that yields x===y when applied to an expression x.

# Details

• SameAs[y][x] yields True if the expression x is identical to y, and yields False otherwise.
• SameAs[y][x1,x2,] is equivalent to SameQ[x1,x2,,y].
• SameAs requires exact correspondence between expressions, except that it still considers Real numbers equal if they differ in their last binary digit.
• SameAs[y][] is equivalent to SameQ[y].

## Basic Examples(3)

Test whether two expressions are identically the same:

Separate a specific element from a list:

Test equivalence of strings:

## Scope(2)

Numbers in different representations are not the same:

Equal nevertheless treats them as equal:

Approximate numbers that differ in their last bit are still considered identical:

## Applications(1)

Create FalseQ, a variant of TrueQ that returns True when an expression is a:

Compare:

## Properties & Relations(2)

SameQ cannot have an operator form, since a single element is the same as itself:

SameAs can be used as an operator form for SameQ:

SameAs applied to null arguments will always be true:

This is equivalent to SameQ for one argument:
