compare equality function

this will check if two values are exactly equal
function is_equal(a, b) {
  if (a === b) {
    return "Equal";
  return "Not Equal";

// you can also change this function to return true and false, but this may be just as long as actually doing the if(a === b) manually.
function is_equal_bool(a, b) {
  if (a === b) {
    return true;
  return false;

if(is_equal_bool(1, 1)) {
  console.log('1 and 1 is exactly equal');

// vs -- probably better to just use the ===
if( 1 === 1 ) {
  console.log('1 and 1 is exactly equal');
} else {
  console.log('1 and 1 is NOT exactly equal');

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
