!= — Determines if one value is not equal to another.


Determines if one value is not equal to another.


(a != b ? v1 : v2)

where a, b, v1 and v2 may be expressions, but a, b not audio-rate.


In the above conditional, a and b are first compared. If the indicated relation is true (a not equal to b), then the conditional expression has the value of v1; if the relation is false, the expression has the value of v2.

NB.: If v1 or v2 are expressions, these will be evaluated before the conditional is determined.

In terms of binding strength, all conditional operators (i.e. the relational operators (<, etc.), and ?, and : ) are weaker than the arithmetic and logical operators (+, -, *, /, && and ||).

These are operators not opcodes. Therefore, they can be used within orchestra statements, but do not form complete statements themselves.


Here is an example of the != operator. It uses the file notequal.csd.
