How to check if two vectors are exactly same in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To check if two vectors are exactly same, we can use identical function.

For example, if we have two vectors say x and y then we can find whether both of them are exactly same or not by using the command given below −

identical(x,y)

Check out the below examples to understand the result of identical function for two vectors.

Example 1

To check if two vectors are exactly same, use the command given below −

x1<-rpois(100,5)
x1

If you execute the above given command, it generates the following output −

[1] 6 6 3 3 0 5 3 6 6 4 5 7 4 9 10 1 5 2 8 4 9 2 9 6 4
[26] 8 3 4 5 5 8 7 2 4 7 4 3 3 6 6 3 5 5 9 6 6 3 6 4 5

[76] 1 4 5 6 4 1 8 3 7 5 1 1 6 3 3 3 5 5 3 4 7 2 7 6 7

To check if two vectors are exactly same, add the following to the above command −

y1<-rpois(100,5)
y1

If you execute all the above given commands as a single program, it generates the following output −

[1] 6 3 5 5 3 3 7 6 6 3 5 10 5 10 6 3 5 6 2 6 6 6 3 3 5
