template<class T, class U> concept weakly-equality-comparable-with = // exposition only requires(const remove_reference_t<T>& t, const remove_reference_t<U>& u) { { t == u } -> boolean; { t != u } -> boolean; { u == t } -> boolean; { u != t } -> boolean; };
For some types T and U, let t and u be lvalues of types const remove_­reference_­t<T> and const remove_­reference_­t<U> respectively.
T and U model weakly-equality-comparable-with<T, U> only if
  • t == u, u == t, t != u, and u != t have the same domain.
  • bool(u == t) == bool(t == u).
  • bool(t != u) == !bool(t == u).
  • bool(u != t) == bool(t != u).
template<class T> concept equality_comparable = weakly-equality-comparable-with<T, T>;
Let a and b be objects of type T.
T models equality_­comparable only if bool(a == b) is true when a is equal to b ([concepts.equality]), and false otherwise.
Note
:
The requirement that the expression a == b is equality-preserving implies that == is transitive and symmetric.

For some types T and U, let t be an lvalue of type const remove_­reference_­t<T>, u be an lvalue of type const remove_­reference_­t<U>, and C be:

T and U model equality_­comparable_­with<T, U> only if bool(t == u) == bool(C(t) == C(u)).
