Return value

A Boolean indicating whether or not the two arguments are the same value.

Description determines whether two values are the same value. Two values are the same if one of the following holds:

  • both undefined
  • both null
  • both true or both false
  • both strings of the same length with the same characters
  • both the same object
  • both numbers and
    • both +0
    • both -0
    • both NaN
    • or both non-zero and both not NaN and both have the same value

This is not the same as being equal according to the == operator. The == operator applies various coercions to both sides (if they are not the same Type) before testing for equality (resulting in such behavior as "" == false being true), but doesn't coerce either value.

This is also not the same as being equal according to the === operator. The === operator (and the == operator as well) treats the number values -0 and +0 as equal and treats Number.NaN as not equal to NaN.

Examples'foo', 'foo');     // true, window);   // true'foo', 'bar');     // false[], []);           // false

var test = { a: 1 };, test);       // true, null);       // true

// Special Cases, -0);            // false, -0);           // true, 0/0);         // true


if (! { = function(x, y) {
    // SameValue algorithm
    if (x === y) { // Steps 1-5, 7-10
      // Steps 6.b-6.e: +0 != -0
      return x !== 0 || 1 / x === 1 / y;
    } else {
     // Step 6.a: NaN == NaN
     return x !== x && y !== y;
