Difference between == and ===

== operator checks if their instance values are equal, "equal to"

=== operator checks if the references point the same instance, "identical to"

let person1 = Person(ssn: 5, name: "Bob")
let person2 = Person(ssn: 5, name: "Bob")

if person1 == person2 {
   print("the two instances are equal!")
}

person1 and person2 references point two different instances in Heap area, their instances are equal because their ssn numbers are equal. So the output will be the two instance are equal!

if person1 === person2 {
   //It does not enter here
} else {
   print("the two instances are not identical!")
}

=== operator checks if the references point the same instance, "identical to". Since person1 and person2 have two different instance in Heap area, they are not identical and the output the two instance are not identical!
