In what way do you want to compare them?  to see if they are the same
string? the same type of var?  different?  greater than?  less than?

My guess is that you want them to be the same (as in the case of two
passwords), in which case it's simple:


if($_POST['pass1'] == $_POST['pass2'])
    $passwords_match = 1;


Of course if you looked in the manual for comparison operators, or even did
a search for comparison, you would have found this quite easy.

If I haven't guessed your question correctly, please provide more

maybe something like levenshtein() is what you want.  Of course, reading
through the string based functions in the manual would also help :)
