(Note that you can also open the expression comparator from the test report toolbar by clicking on the test compare icon .)
This opens the comparator, which is
a tree view showing the expected and actual trees. The trees
are tied together so that opening equivalent levels in one
opens the other. They are also marked to show where the
An example is shown below.
This shows that at the first level the expected expression has fun as a head but the actual expression has Power as a head.
