What Is A Boolean In Programming?

A boolean is a term used to represent either a state of true or false.

When it comes to programming, most languages for example, Python use the true and false construct for booleans:

01: b = True 02: type(b) 03: <class 'bool'>

For other languages or under certain conditions a 1 for True and a 0 for False can be used instead.

These states can then later be used in a conditional [→] to decide the direction a code execution flow should take.

01: 02: var a = true 03: 04: if(a) { 05: console.log("a is true") 06: } else { 07: console.log("a is not true") 08: }
