Re: InstantDB: Boolean datatype


Raj

The answer is "sort of". Basically, you can use BOOLEAN as a synonym for the
BYTE type. "true" and "false" are accepted as 1 and 0. See

http://instantdb.enhydra.org/software/documentation/types.html#Numeric-Types

for details.

This isn't a true BOOLEAN type, but the above kludge should help with some
SQL compatibility problems.

Regards

Pete
