or    --    boolean "or" operators


Syntax
A or B         (where A, B: BOOL, return BOOL)

Description
This operator represents the logical disjunction of A and B . CoCoA first evaluates A ; if that gives true then the result is true , and B is not evaluated. Otherwise, if A gives false then B is evaluated, and its value is the final result.

Example
/**/  Define IsUnsuitable(X)
/**/    Return X < 0 or FloorSqrt(X) >= 2^16;
/**/  EndDefine;
/**/  IsUnsuitable(-9);
true
/**/  IsUnsuitable(9);
false
