from the manual (3.4 - Querying the Stack):

The API also contains functions to compare two values in the stack: 

       int lua_equal    (lua_State *L, int index1, int index2);
       int lua_rawequal (lua_State *L, int index1, int index2);
       int lua_lessthan (lua_State *L, int index1, int index2);

lua_equal and lua_lessthan are equivalent to their counterparts in Lua (see 
2.5.2). lua_rawequal compares the values for primitive equality, without 
metamethods. These functions return 0 (false) if any of the indices are
