Boolean expressions are evaluated according to the usual Maple rules, except that no result can remain unevaluated. Every expression should evaluate to true or false.
Some Boolean functions have a special treatment: (a) type(...,numeric), type(...,float), and type(...,rational) will return true regardless of the argument; (b) type(...,integer) returns true if the float argument represents an exact integer.
Boolean variables or expressions (outside if or while statements) will have the values 1.0 (true) and 0.0 (false).
Equations and relations in general will be treated as Boolean expressions if encountered outside an ``if'' or ``while'' statement.
