How to use not equal operator in python


How would you say does not equal?


if hi == hi:
print "hi"
elif hi (does not equal) bye:
print "no hi"

Is there something equivalent to == that means "not equal"?



ou can use the not equal operator !=. This is used to perform the comparison of the object identities.


1 == 1 #  -> True

1 != 1 #  -> False

[] is [] #-> False (distinct objects)

a = b = []; a is b # -> True (same object)
