or is it True and False, …?
Boolean logic is just part of the job as a programmer.
However, language writers have made our life complicated.
We don’t just have 0 and 1 for true and false.
We have types such as bool, Bool, boolean, Boolean.
We have true, True, TRUE, false, False, FALSE, 0, 1, non-zero, non-empty, NULL, … AARRG!!!!
It’s really not a big deal if you just program in one language. But who does that anymore?
So what’s a person to do.
Personally, I set up vim colorization based on file extension such that the correct types get colored. And if I mess it up, it doesn’t get colored.
However, it’s still frustrating.
Anyone out there got a simple cheat sheet or mnemonic to keep it all straight?
