Ds\Hashable::equalsDetermines whether an object is equal to the current instance.

Description

abstract public bool Ds\Hashable::equals ( object $obj )

Note:

It's guaranteed that obj is an instance of the same class.

Caution

It's important that objects which are equal also have the same hash value. See Ds\Hashable::hash().

Parameters

obj

The object to compare the current instance to, which is always an instance of the same class.

Return Values

TRUE if equal, FALSE otherwise.
