How to use multiple equal signs?

I want to compare three values to each other, like this
a == b == c
But if I try this out with
5 == 5 == 5
It yields FALSE (0) instead of TRUE (1), while it should yield TRUE (1) if a is equal to b and equal to c like 5 is equal to 5 and equal to 5.
Any ideas on how I could fix this?

a == b == c
does not work in Matlab because the first part evaluates to give a boolean which is then tested against the final value which will (usually) return false.
