>You can answer these sorts of questions yourself using Hoogle:
And what makes you think I haven't tried Google already?
Hoogle, starting with 'H'. Follow the link I gave you, which is a
search engine for Haskell functions, by type and name. If you search
for "a -> a -> Bool" (a likely type that the != would have) then
Hoogle gives you an answer.
Unlike you I only write to the list when I have a legitimate reason to do so.
I am not suggesting you have no legitimate reason, just trying to help
you find the information you need quicker in future. I was in no way
trying to suggest you shouldn't have posted - its a fair question
given its a different choice to most other languages.
