Table assertions

  • _AFT.assertItemsEquals(actual, expected)

    Assert that two tables contain the same items, irrespective of their keys.

    This function is practical for example if you want to compare two lists but where items are not in the same order:

      luaunit.assertItemsEquals( {1,2,3}, {3,2,1} ) -- assertion succeeds
    

    The comparison is not recursive on the items: if any of the items are tables, they are compared using table equality (like as in assertEquals() ), where the key matters.

      luaunit.assertItemsEquals( {1,{2,3},4}, {4,{3,2,},1} ) -- assertion fails because {2,3} ~= {3,2}
