Suggest use of cmpopts.EquateErrors (#234) If cmp panics because it is trying to access an unexported field, specially suggest the use of cmpopts.EquateErrors if the parent type implements the error interface. Fixes #233
This package is intended to be a more powerful and safer alternative to
reflect.DeepEqual for comparing whether two values are semantically equal.
The primary features of
When the default behavior of equality does not suit the needs of the test, custom equality functions can override the equality operation. For example, an equality function may report floats as equal so long as they are within some tolerance of each other.
Types that have an
Equal method may use that method to determine equality. This allows package authors to determine the equality operation for the types that they define.
If no custom equality functions are used and no
Equal method is defined, equality is determined by recursively comparing the primitive kinds on both values, much like
reflect.DeepEqual, unexported fields are not compared by default; they result in panics unless suppressed by using an
Ignore option (see
cmpopts.IgnoreUnexported) or explicitly compared using the
