# array_equal#

ivy.array_equal(x0, x1, /)[source]#

Determine whether two input arrays are equal across all elements.

Parameters:
• x0 (`Union`[`Array`, `NativeArray`]) – The first input array to compare.

• x1 (`Union`[`Array`, `NativeArray`]) – The second input array to compare.

Return type:

`bool`

Returns:

ret – Boolean, whether or not the input arrays are equal across all elements.

Examples

```>>> x = ivy.array([1,0,1])
>>> y = ivy.array([1,0,-1])
>>> z = ivy.array_equal(x,y)
>>> print(z)
False
```
```>>> a = ivy.array([1, 2])
>>> b = ivy.array([1, 2])
>>> c = ivy.array_equal(a,b)
>>> print(c)
True
```
```>>> i = ivy.array([1, 2])
>>> j = ivy.array([1, 2, 3])
>>> k = ivy.array_equal(i,j)
>>> print(k)
False
```
Array.array_equal(self, x, /)#

ivy.Array instance method variant of ivy.array_equal. This method simply wraps the function, and so the docstring for ivy.array_equal also applies to this method with minimal changes.

Parameters:
• self (`Array`) – input array

• x (`Union`[`Array`, `NativeArray`]) – input array to compare to `self`

Return type:

`bool`

Returns:

ret – Boolean, whether or not the input arrays are equal

Examples

```>>> x = ivy.array([-1,0])
>>> y = ivy.array([1,0])
>>> z = x.array_equal(y)
>>> print(z)
False
```
```>>> a = ivy.array([1, 2])
>>> b = ivy.array([1, 2])
>>> c = a.array_equal(b)
>>> print(c)
True
```
Container.array_equal(self, x, /, *, key_chains=None, to_apply=True, prune_unapplied=False, map_sequences=False)#

ivy.Container instance method variant of ivy.array_equal. This method simply wraps the function, and so the docstring for ivy.array_equal also applies to this method with minimal changes.

Parameters:
• self (`Union`[`Array`, `NativeArray`, `Container`]) – The first input container to compare.

• x (`Union`[`Array`, `NativeArray`, `Container`]) – The second input container to compare.

• key_chains (`Optional`[`Union`[`List`[`str`], `Dict`[`str`, `str`]]]) – The key-chains to apply or not apply the method to. Default is `None`. (default: `None`)

• to_apply (`bool`) – If True, the method will be applied to key_chains, otherwise key_chains (default: `True`) will be skipped. Default is `True`.

• prune_unapplied (`bool`) – Whether to prune key_chains for which the function was not applied. (default: `False`) Default is `False`.

• map_sequences (`bool`) – Whether to also map method to sequences (lists, tuples). (default: `False`) Default is `False`.

Return type:

`Container`

Returns:

ret – A boolean container indicating whether the two containers are equal at each level.

Examples

```>>> a = ivy.array([[0., 1.], [1. ,0.]])
>>> b = ivy.array([[-2., 1.], [1. ,2.]])
>>> c = ivy.array([[0., 1.], [1. ,0.]])
>>> d = ivy.array([[2., 1.], [1. ,2.]])
>>> a0 = ivy.Container(a = a, b = b)
>>> a1 = ivy.Container(a = c, b = d)
>>> y = a0.array_equal(a1)
>>> print(y)
{
a: true,
b: false
}
```
