rawequal( tbl1, tbl2 )
Compare two tables, bypassing metamethods
A table to compare.

Another table to compare.

When creating things like custom containers and objects, one often overrides the __eq metamethod with custom code, possibly to to do deep comparisons or to omit certain elements, but might then need to check for regular equality without going through that override. This can be done with rawequal().
