Compares object and expected using all.equal() and check.attributes = FALSE.

expect_equivalent(
  object,
  expected,
  ...,
  info = NULL,
  label = NULL,
  expected.label = NULL
)

Arguments

object

Computation and value to compare it to.

Both arguments supports limited unquoting to make it easier to generate readable failures within a function or for loop. See quasi_label for more details.

expected

Computation and value to compare it to.

Both arguments supports limited unquoting to make it easier to generate readable failures within a function or for loop. See quasi_label for more details.

In the 3rd edition; passed on to waldo::compare(). See its docs to see other ways to control comparison. In the 2nd edition; passed on to compare()/identical().
