Test::Deeply::Relaxed - Compare two complex data structures loosely

SYNOPSIS
========

        use Test;
        use Test::Deeply::Relaxed;

        is-deeply-relaxed 'foo', 'foo';
        isnt-deeply-relaxed 'foo', 'bar';

        is-deeply-relaxed 5, 5;
        isnt-deeply-relaxed 5, '5';

        is-deeply-relaxed [1, 2, 3], Array[Int:D].new(1, 2, 3);

        is-deeply-relaxed {:a("foo"), :b("bar")}, Hash[Str:D].new({ :a("foo"), :b("bar") });

        # And now for the one that made me write this...
        my Array[Str:D] %opts;
        %opts<v> = Array[Str:D].new("v", "v");
        %opts<i> = Array[Str:D].new("foo.txt", "bar.txt");
        is-deeply-relaxed %opts, {:v([<v v>]), :i([<foo.txt bar.txt>]) };

        # It works with weirder types, too
        is-deeply-relaxed bag(<a b a a>), { a => 3, b => 1 }.Mix;
        isnt-deeply-relaxed bag(<a b a a>), { a => 2, b => 1 }.Mix;
        isnt-deeply-relaxed bag(<a b a a>), { a => 3, b => 1.5 }.Mix;

DESCRIPTION
===========

The `Test:::Deeply::Relaxed` module provides the `is-deeply-relaxed()` and `isnt-deeply-relaxed()` functions that do not check the state of mind of the passed objects, but instead compare their structure in depth similarly to `is-deeply()`, but a bit more loosely. In particular, they ignore the differences between typed and untyped collections, e.g. they will consider an array and an explicit `Array[Str:D]` to be the same if the strings contained within are indeed the same.

FUNCTIONS
=========

  * sub is-deeply-relaxed

        sub is-deeply-relaxed($got, $expected, $name = Str, Bool:D :$cache = False)

    Compare the two data structures in depth similarly to `is-deeply()`, but a bit more loosely.

    If the `:cache` flag is specified, the cache of values will be used for any iterable objects that support it. This allows the caller to later examine the sequences further.

    Current API available since version 0.1.0.

  * sub isnt-deeply-relaxed

        sub isnt-deeply-relaxed($got, $expected, $name = Str, Bool:D :$cache = False)

    The opposite of `is-deeply-relaxed()` - fail if the two structures are loosely the same.

    Current API available since version 0.1.0.
