I am trying to find a word, other than
Boolean, that represents a true or false value. Is there such a word?
I am designing a programming language that is meant to be as easy as possible to understand for those who know nothing of programming. I am trying to name the fundamental types in a way that portrays their purpose to the target audience well. For example, instead of
float or even
floating-point number, the data type is called
decimal. After much thought and use of a popular search engine, I cannot think of an alternative to
Boolean for true or false values.
The reason I do not wish to use
Boolean is that people who have not been exposed to programming or similar logical thinking simply do not know what it is, which is exactly what I am trying to avoid.
