Hi everyone .

I read the documentation, but I still don’t understand if there is an equal operator in Crystal. I used the assignment operator to designate my variables, but for example I need to equalize a variable, how can I do this?

e.g:

`if a = 5`

`if a == 5`

← Could it be in Crystal? I tried to find info, but I couldn’t …

Thanks everyone for the help!

```
a = 5
a # => 5
b = 6
b # => 6
if a == b
puts "equal"
else
puts "not equal"
end
# => not equal
```
