# sknano.testing.AtomsTestFixture.assertAlmostEqual¶

AtomsTestFixture.assertAlmostEqual(first, second, places=None, msg=None, delta=None)[source]

Fail if the two objects are unequal as determined by their difference rounded to the given number of decimal places (default 7) and comparing to zero, or by comparing that the between the two objects is more than the given delta.

Note that decimal places (from zero) are usually not the same as significant digits (measured from the most signficant digit).

If the two objects compare equal then they will automatically compare almost equal.
