what programming language?
what context?

usually, a notation x[i]  means that x is an array, and you take the array item number i from it.

so pat[1] <> pat[4] compares array item 1 with array item 4 to see if they differ.

note: some languages/array types have a 0-based indexing, so x[1] actually means second item in the aray
