Checking Inequality

In most languages there is a != operator for checking inequality of two things.

Postgres also supports the synonymous <> operator for checking inequality.

> select 1 <> 1;
 ?column?
----------
 f

> select true <> false;
 ?column?
----------
 t

> select 'taco' <> 'burrito';
 ?column?
----------
 t
