I think you have just misunderstood glen herrmannsfeldt's terminology.
By "inequalities", glen herrmannsfeldt no doubt meant the C operators
">", ">=", "<" and "<=", which correspond to those operators in
mathematics that are often known by mathematicians as "inequalities",
not the C "!=" operator. His terminology was admittedly confusing.
It would have been much clearer to follow the terminology used in the
C standard and to therefore describe these operators as "relational"
operators. But nevertheless what he said was correct, presuming you
interpret "inequalities" in the mathematical sense.
