Abstract

In this chapter, we will discuss one of the most basic and frequent operations you will perform as you program: comparing data. In our bookstore example, you may need to compare book titles if your clients are looking for a specific book. You may also need to compare authors if your clients are interested in purchasing books by a specific author. Comparing data is a common tasks for developers. Many of the loops you learned about in the previous chapter will require you to compare data to know when your code should stop looping.
