Returns 1, 0 or error.


Checks if two JSON are equal in content.
We compare recursively all nodes.
If structure and values are the same, we return 1, otherwise 0.
Objects do not need to have same order for entries.

While JSON.Equals checks the type, this function does check the content.


Compare 123 with text to it as number:

MBS( "JSON.EqualContent"; "\"123\""; "123")

Example result: 1

Unicode escapes consider the same as inline characters:

MBS( "JSON.EqualContent"; "\"\uD83C\uDF4E\""; "\"🍎\""))

Example result: 1
