Depends on what kind of comparision: Strings can be tested for the following
Equality - the eq operator
Inequality - the ne operator
Greater Than - the gt operator
Greater or Equal - the ge operator
Less than - the lt operator
Less of Equal - the le operator


Syntax:
$stringtest = ($string1 eq $string2);
Try replacing eq with the other operators.

    The inequality operator is ne.
