# near

From dplyr v0.5.0
by Hadley Wickham

##### 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.

##### Examples

`library(dplyr)`

```
sqrt(2) ^ 2 == 2
near(sqrt(2) ^ 2, 2)
```
