If you try to compare two slices with the help of == operator then it will give you an error.You can only use == operator to check the given slice is nill or not.func compareSlices(slice1, slice2 []int) {fmt.Println(slice1 == nil)// fmt.Println(slice1 == slice2)// this line gives error}//Note: If you want to compare two slices, then use range for loop to match each element or you can use DeepEqual function.
