You should be able to use ==. 

Are the lengths of your strings the same length? readLine() has a strip newlines parameter that is true by default.

Does Swift require a .equals() or a .compareTo(), as other c like languages, or are there invisible characters in my string because of the readLine() which I need to strip out?
