OPAL#

abs()#

The abs() function accepts a numeric or duration argument and returns the absolute value.

same()#

same() accepts two arguments, of any type, and returns true if they are identical or false if not. Unlike the similar = operator or the eq() function, same() may be used to compare null values. For example, same(null, null) returns true.
