operator!= (<iterator>)

Tests if the iterator object on the left side of the operator is not equal to the iterator object on the right side.

template<class RandomIterator> 
   bool operator!=( 
      const reverse_iterator<RandomIterator>& _Left, 
      const reverse_iterator<RandomIterator>& _Right 
   ); 
template<class Type, class CharType, class Traits, class Distance> 
   bool operator!=( 
      const istream_iterator<Type, CharType, Traits, Distance>& _Left, 
      const istream_iterator<Type, CharType, Traits, Distance>& _Right 
   ); 
template<class CharType, class Tr> 
   bool operator!=( 
      const istreambuf_iterator<CharType, Traits>& _Left, 
      const istreambuf_iterator<CharType, Traits>& _Right 
);

_Left

An object of type iterator.

_Right

An object of type iterator.

true if the iterator objects are not equal; false if the iterator objects are equal.

One iterator object is equal to another if they address the same elements in a container. If two iterators point to different elements in a container, then they are not equal.

The vector vec is: ( 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 ).
The iterator rVPOS1 initially points to the first element
 in the reversed sequence: 8.
The iterators are equal.
The iterator rVPOS1 now points to the second element
 in the reversed sequence: 7.
The iterators are not equal.
