General constraint to compare for equality
The IsEqualTo
class creates a constraint that
compares data for equality. The type of comparison it uses is governed
by the data type of the expected value. First, the testing framework
checks if the expected value is an object. This check is performed
first because it is possible for the object to have overridden methods
that are used in subsequent checks (e.g. islogical
).
The following list categorizes and describes the various tests.
Data Type  Equality Comparison Method 

MATLAB^{®} & Java^{®} Objects  If the expected value is a MATLAB or Java object,
the 
Logicals  If the expected value is a 
Numerics  If the expected value is 
Strings  If the expected value is a 
Structures  If the expected value is a 
Cell Arrays  If the expected value is a cell array, the constraint checks the actual and expected values for size equality. If they are not equal in size, the constraint is not satisfied. Otherwise, each element of the array is recursively compared in a manner identical to fields in a structure, described above.
