Checks if two JSON are equal.
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.


Compare two numbers:

MBS( "JSON.Equals"; 1; 1 )

Example result: 1

Comparing strings:

MBS( "JSON.Equals"; "\"Hello\""; "\"World\"" ) &
MBS( "JSON.Equals"; "\"Hello\""; "\"Hello\"" )

Example result: 01

Comparing booleans:

MBS( "JSON.Equals"; true; true ) &
MBS( "JSON.Equals"; false; false ) &
MBS( "JSON.Equals"; true; false ) &
MBS( "JSON.Equals"; false; true )

Example result: 1100

Compare objects:

MBS( "JSON.Equals"; "{\"key\": \"value\"}"; "{\"key\": \"value\"}") & MBS( "JSON.Equals"; "{\"key\": \"value\"}"; "{\"key\": \"Value\"}")
