I'm working as a Software Engineer in US, and I'm a non-native speaker. I am familiar with the phrase "same as".
When I read the following wiki page, I encountered a phrase consisting of "same" and "than". I am copying and pasting that sentence at the bottom of this question.
I do not clearly understand what it means. Could anyone please tell me whether the following sentence makes sense? If so, could you explain to me what it means?
In object-oriented programming, a friend function, that is a "friend" of a given class, is a function that is given the same access than methods to private and protected data.
