Percentile

Compare two numeric vectors.

This is a safe way of comparing if two vectors of floating point numbers are (pairwise) equal. This is safer than using ==, because it has a built in tolerance

Usage
near(x, y, tol = .Machine$double.eps^0.5)
Arguments
x, y

Numeric vectors to compare

tol

Tolerance of comparison.
