What does <> mean?
I have seen this before in SQL and VB, I am now reverse engineering an Excel speadsheet and have come across the following formula:
I am converting it to ActionScript:
var result:String = [condition] ? 0 : "Insufficient";
but I am unsure of what D23 <> 0 means, is it simply "not equal"?
Yes, it means "not equal", either less than or greater than. e.g
If x <> y Then
can be read as
if x is less than y or x is greater than y then
The logical outcome being "If x is anything except equal to y"
It means not equal to. The same as != seen in C style languages, as well as actionscript.
Yes in SQl <> is the same as != which is not equal.....excepts for NULLS of course, in that case you need to use IS NULL or IS NOT NULL
Yes, it's "not equal".
"Does not equal"
I instinctively read it as "different from". "!=" hits me milliseconds after.
