operator == method Null safety
- Object other
Test whether another object is equal to this function.
Function objects are only equal to other function objects
(an object satisfying
object is Function),
and never to non-function objects.
Some function objects are considered equal by
because they are recognized as representing the "same function":
- It is the same object. Static and top-level functions are compile time constants when used as values, so referring to the same function twice always give the same object, as does referring to a local function declaration twice in the same scope where it was declared.
- if they refer to the same member method extracted from the same object. Repeatedly extracting an instance method of an object as a function value gives equal, but not necessarily identical, function values.
Different evaluations of function literals never give rise to equal function objects. Each time a function literal is evaluated, it creates a new function value that is not equal to any other function value, not even ones created by the same expression.
