Have result values of type Boolean. All conditions (such as what goes after an if and while) must be of type Boolean. There are a few special infix operations that take two Booleans and result in a Boolean: and, or, and xor (exclusive-or), with their usual meanings. The value of "True and False" is False, while the value of "True or False" is True. "Exclusive or" is true if either of two conditions, but not both, is true. There is also the prefix operation not. If a boolean variable A has the value True, "not K has the value False.

BASICTYPES(FLOAT,BOOLEAN,SUBTYPES, RECORD) 46 into floating-point values. This makes it clear when such conversions are taking place, which is sometimes important in understanding what a program is doing. Also, whenever you set a Float to a constant, the constant must be written with a period in it, or the compiler will complain. Float_Text_IO; use Ada. Float_Text_IO; procedure Think is -- A and B initially zero; note the period. 0; I := J * 3; B := Float(I) + A; Put(B); end Think; It's important that you understand the general limitations of floating-point numbers on digital computers.

This helps to catch errors early. QUIZ. Which of the following expressions is true? 1. (2 + 3) * 4 = 2 2. 6/3 > 12 - 2 3. 2 + 8 /= 28 + (3 * 4) RESPONSES 1. No, sorry. (2 + 3) * 4 evaluates to (5) * 4, which is 20. However,2 + (3 * 4) evaluates to 2 + (12), which is 14. They aren't equal. 2. No, sorry. 6/3 evaluates to 2. 12 - 2 evaluates to 10. Is 2 > 10?
