Logical operators (and, or, xor)

[<<<] [>>>]

These operators can be used for both logical and bit-wise operators. ScriptBasic does not have a separate type for logical values. Boolean values are stored in integer storage. The logical TRUE is represented as integer value -1 and the logical FALSE is 0. In other words the logical TRUE is an integer value, which is represented by a memory location of n bytes having all bits set to 1. On the other hand logical FALSE is an integer value represented by a memory location of n bytes having all bits reset.

The operators and, or and xor perform the calculation on integer values, If any of the operands is not integer it is converted to integer value before the operation takes place. The operations are performed on each bit of the operands.

This means that the operators can also be used for logical operations.
