[erlang-questions] comparing of atoms in native code

hello let's suppose I have a static ERL_NIF_TERM which is equal with an


ERL_NIF_TERM make_atom(ErlNifEnv* env, const char* name)
    ERL_NIF_TERM ret;

    if(enif_make_existing_atom(env, name, &ret, ERL_NIF_LATIN1))
        return ret;

    return enif_make_atom(env, name);

static ERL_NIF_TERM atomTrue =  make_atom(env, "true");

It is safe to compare this with other ERL_NIF_TERM values using = or !=
operators ?

Or I need to use enif_is_identical ?
