template<class InputIterator1, class InputIterator2> bool equal(InputIterator1 first1, InputIterator1 last1, InputIterator2 first2); template<class ExecutionPolicy, class ForwardIterator1, class ForwardIterator2> bool equal(ExecutionPolicy&& exec, ForwardIterator1 first1, ForwardIterator1 last1, ForwardIterator2 first2); template<class InputIterator1, class InputIterator2, class BinaryPredicate> bool equal(InputIterator1 first1, InputIterator1 last1, InputIterator2 first2, BinaryPredicate pred); template<class ExecutionPolicy, class ForwardIterator1, class ForwardIterator2, class BinaryPredicate> bool equal(ExecutionPolicy&& exec, ForwardIterator1 first1, ForwardIterator1 last1, ForwardIterator2 first2, BinaryPredicate pred); template<class InputIterator1, class InputIterator2> bool equal(InputIterator1 first1, InputIterator1 last1, InputIterator2 first2, InputIterator2 last2); template<class ExecutionPolicy, class ForwardIterator1, class ForwardIterator2> bool equal(ExecutionPolicy&& exec, ForwardIterator1 first1, ForwardIterator1 last1, ForwardIterator2 first2, ForwardIterator2 last2); template<class InputIterator1, class InputIterator2, class BinaryPredicate> bool equal(InputIterator1 first1, InputIterator1 last1, InputIterator2 first2, InputIterator2 last2, BinaryPredicate pred); template<class ExecutionPolicy, class ForwardIterator1, class ForwardIterator2, class BinaryPredicate> bool equal(ExecutionPolicy&& exec, ForwardIterator1 first1, ForwardIterator1 last1, ForwardIterator2 first2, ForwardIterator2 last2, BinaryPredicate pred);

Remarks: If last2 was not given in the argument list, it denotes first2 + (last1 - first1) below.

Returns: If last1 - first1 != last2 - first2, return false. Otherwise return true if for every iterator i in the range [first1, last1) the following corresponding conditions hold: *i == *(first2 + (i - first1)), pred(*i, *(first2 + (i - first1))) != false. Otherwise, returns false.

Complexity:

  • For the overloads with no ExecutionPolicy,

    • if InputIterator1 and InputIterator2 meet the requirements of random access iterators ([random.access.iterators]) and last1 - first1 != last2 - first2, then no applications of the corresponding predicate; otherwise,

    • at most applications of the corresponding predicate.

  • For the overloads with no ExecutionPolicy,

    • if ForwardIterator1 and ForwardIterator2 meet the requirements of random access iterators and last1 - first1 != last2 - first2, then no applications of the corresponding predicate; otherwise,

    • applications of the corresponding predicate.
