bool is Move’s primitive type for boolean true and false values.


Literals for bool are either true or false.



bool supports three logical operations:

SyntaxDescriptionEquivalent Expression
&&short-circuiting logical andp && q is equivalent to if (p) q else false
||short-circuiting logical orp || q is equivalent to if (p) true else q
!logical negation!p is equivalent to if (p) false else true

Control Flow

bool values are used in several of Move’s control-flow constructs:


As with the other scalar values built-in to the language, boolean values are implicitly copyable, meaning they can be copied without an explicit instruction such as copy.
