Official ZPE/YASS documentationstring_text_compare

string_text_compare (string text1, string text2) ⇒ boolean

Compares two pieces of text for character equality without spaces and case insensitively. It works by parsing the strings character by character and removing whitespace and lower casing the whole string.

First available: Version 1.7.9


This function is highly specialised and designed for a particular use case. One such use case for this function is when comparing code samples, for example, in a quiz program that asks the user to insert code and then compares it to a corrected sample that has been provided, since this will ignore whitespacing.
