The bool type is used for logical and boolean values and expressions. Other types may also be used to express true and false values.
- [Instructor] The bool type is used…for logical values and expressions.…Here in Komodo I've opened a working copy…of types.py from chapter three of the exercise files,…and if I save this and run it, you'll see I get…x is 7 and class int.…And so, that's coming from that line five,…which prints the value of x,…and line six, which prints the type of x.…Here in line four I assign a value to x…and if I assign it the special literal True…with a capital T, you'll see when I run it…that the class is bool,…and the representation in the string is the word True.…
And likewise if I use False here,…I also get the class is bool.…So the bool type is for logical values and expressions.…For example here, if I say seven is greater than five,…I'll get a bool type True.…And I'll save and run that, x is True.…This is because the comparison operator…has returned True or False in the bool type.…
It's worth noting at this point…and I have a reason for this, we're going to use this…and you need to understand that there is a special type,…
