1.1
open fun equals(other: Any?): Boolean
For JS

Compares this list with another list instance with the ordered structural equality.

Return true, if other instance is a List of the same size, which contains the same elements in the same order.

For Native

Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this one. Implementations must fulfil the following requirements:

  • Reflexive: for any non-null reference value x, x.equals(x) should return true.
  • Symmetric: for any non-null reference values x and y, x.equals(y) should return true if and only if y.equals(x) returns true.
  • Transitive: for any non-null reference values x, y, and z, if x.equals(y) returns true and y.equals(z) returns true, then x.equals(z) should return true
  • Consistent: for any non-null reference values x and y, multiple invocations of x.equals(y) consistently return true or consistently return false, provided no information used in equals comparisons on the objects is modified.

Note that the == operator in Kotlin code is translated into a call to equals when objects on both sides of the operator are not null.
