Short for not equal, ne or != is an operator used in programming languages and in command line commands. For example, in programming languages such as Perl, you could type something similar to the example below.

if ($variable1 ne $variable2) {
print "They are not the same"; }

In the example above, if the value stored in $variable1 is not equal to $variable2, the program would print They are not the same.
