> It is cheap to define true and false once,
I think that some people were confused with this statement. He meant
that 'true' and 'false' would be constants like in C++ and Java. It
would be illegal to try
true = false
Thus while true: is equal to while 1: except that a boolean, not an
integer is used for the test. I, for one, would like to abolish the
concept that an integer can denote true or false. How many functions
return 0 for success? (just take a look at the standard C library).
