Jeff Moden (11/7/2007)The reason I really don't like it is because 1) it's not what I'm accustomed to for identifying an inequality (used to <> because of Math) and 2) for some reason, it's hard for me to see when I'm reviewing code... I guess I just don't think there should be an = sign in an inequality 😉
The exact opposite for me.
I learnt != in maths so seeing <> has always been a wtf moment for me.
Just different notation dialects.
"!" being a shorthand for the logical NOT operator means != is almost instinctive for me.
Similarly I use "~" as shorthand for approx* whenever I am writing notes for myself.
