Details

The function checks the first object against all others, so if the first object is identical to the second and to the third, then also the second and the third are identical.
(If A=B and A=C then is B=C)

A <- LETTERS[1:5]
B <- LETTERS[1:5]
C <- LETTERS[1:5]
D <- LETTERS[1:5]
E <- factor(LETTERS[1:5])
# all okAllIdentical(A, B, C, D)
# at least one odd manAllIdentical(A, B, C, D, E)
