Determines if two numbers are not equal.

template<typename T, typename U>
inline bool SafeNotEquals (
   const T t,
   const U u
) throw ();


  • [in] t
    The first number to compare. This must be of type T.

  • [in] u
    The second number to compare. This must be of type U.

Return Value

true if t and u are not equal; otherwise false.


The method enhances != because SafeNotEquals enables you to compare two different types of numbers.

This method is part of SafeInt Library and is designed for a single comparison operation without creating an instance of the SafeInt Class.


This method should only be used when a single mathematical operation must be protected. If there are multiple operations, you should use the SafeInt class instead of calling the individual stand-alone functions.

For more information about the template types T and U, see SafeInt Functions.
