linalg(deprecated)

 equal
 determine whether two matrices are equal Calling Sequence equal(A, B) Parameters

 A, B - matrices Description

 • Important: The linalg package has been deprecated. Use the superseding command LinearAlgebra[Equal], instead.
 - For information on migrating linalg code to the new packages, see examples/LinearAlgebraMigration.
 • The procedure equal returns true if matrices A and B are of the same shape and corresponding entries are equal, false or an error otherwise.
 • The command with(linalg,equal) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command. Examples

equal returns an error if A and B are not of the same type
