Python Question

I would like to test the equality of multiple args (i.e. it should return

`True`

`False`

As

`numpy.equal`

`reduce(np.equal, (4, 4, 4)) # return False because...`

reduce(np.equal, (True, 4)) # ... is False

Answer

You can use `np.unique`

to check if the length of unique items within your array is 1:

```
np.unique(array).size == 1
```

Or `np.all()`

in order to check if all of the items are equal with one of your items (for example the first one):

```
np.all(array == array[0])
```

Demo:

```
>>> a = np.array([1, 1, 1, 1])
>>> b = np.array([1, 1, 1, 2])
>>> np.unique(a).size == 1
True
>>> np.unique(b).size == 1
False
>>> np.all(a==a[0])
True
>>> np.all(b==b[0])
False
```
