System won't accept <> in lieu of !=


#1

i used <> instead of != and the system wouldn't accept my answer.

from https://docs.python.org/2/reference/expressions.html#comparisons :
"The forms <> and != are equivalent"
maybe the system could be updated to say "The <> spelling is considered obsolescent." ?

Hi @beej666 ,

Codecademy's Python interpreter does accept the <> operator. However, that does not mean that Python's submission correctness test (SCT), which is distinct from the Python interpreter, will accept that operator as part of a solution for any particular exercise. It is possible that the SCT would require the != operator instead; that would depend upon how the SCT was written for the exercise.
