# func Equal

Defined in github.com/letsencrypt/boulder/vendor/github.com/golang/protobuf/proto/equal.go

## Description

Equal returns true iff protocol buffers a and b are equal. The arguments must both be pointers to protocol buffer structs.

Equality is defined in this way:

- Two messages are equal iff they are the same type, corresponding fields are equal, unknown field sets are equal, and extensions sets are equal. - Two set scalar fields are equal iff their values are equal. If the fields are of a floating-point type, remember that NaN != x for all x, including NaN. If the message is defined in a proto3 .proto file, fields are not "set"; specifically, zero length proto3 "bytes" fields are equal (nil == {}). - Two repeated fields are equal iff their lengths are the same, and their corresponding elements are equal (a "bytes" field, although represented by []byte, is not a repeated field) - Two unset fields are equal. - Two unknown field sets are equal if their current encoded state is equal. - Two extension sets are equal iff they have corresponding elements that are pairwise equal. - Every other combination of things are not equal.

The return value is undefined if a and b are not protocol buffers.
