The util object has a lot of helpful functions in it that would be nice to use outside the context of assertions.

For instance, if you want to check deep equality without breaking when false.

if (chai.util.eql(obj1, obj2)) {
  // do more things
} else {
  // do other things instead of having a failing assertion

Hi @DingoEatingFuzz, thanks for the pull request! Seems like a fairly straightforward addition, and I don't have much problem with that.

Having said that I can't merge it just yet, because of commit b4614da. Can you please remove this commit - as we'll generate a new build JS file when we publish a new version.


Yep, I can remove that. I wasn't sure what the deal with new builds was.


Sorry about that @DingoEatingFuzz; I'll clear this up in the contrib guidelines soon (see #336)


No worries. The commit is gone now 👍
