Description (last modified by dlucas)

In this ticket, we propose a default implementation of __ne__ methods for AbstractLinearCode, Encoder and Decoder classes, which means one will only need to implement __eq__ in the subclasses.

This new __ne__ simply returns the inverse of the return value of __eq__.

I removed the old implementation of __ne__ in, created generic implementation for the top classes Decoder, Encoder and AbstractLinearCode and implemented __eq__ for encoders in

This is now open for review.

490f739Removed old __ne__ methods, implemented generic __ne__ in Decoder, Encoder and AbstractLinearCode

Better use not self == other as it is faster and more flexible. The only reason to not do so is if your equality might return NotImplemented.

I agree with 4: avoid a.__eq__(b) unless you have a good reason for it.

Thanks for the advice!

I changed my code accordingly.
