<, >, <= or >=

You don't have to do anything special. The reason for the distinction for equal is you can set something equal to 5 or you can test if something is equal to 5. These are very different. Since you don't set something >= 5, you don't need a separate symbol for testing if something is greater than or equal to 5.
