  • ColdFusion String Comparison: Compare() vs. Equals() vs. CompareTo()

    Posted on May 10, 2012 at 4:46 PM

    Ok - I'm officially an idiot. After methodically eliminating every other possible cause (and possible fix) it turned out that the the two filenames I was comparing were NOT, in fact, identical.
