Can you give an example, in which situation you check the equality of two
matrices? I never needed it in my codes.
BTW: Using norm_1(A-B) or norm_inf(A-B) is a O(n*m) or O(nnz) operation. Doing
a elementwise comparison (optionally with short circuit) is O(n*m) or O(nnz),
too. So there is no difference regarding the algorithmic complexity.
