The IMP logical operator converts the result of two comparative values and returns a bit result.

## Syntax

result = firstValue IMP secondValue

## Description

• Returns a different result from AND, OR or XOR - see truth table below.
• Evaluates if firstValue implies secondValue.
• If firstValue is true then secondValue must also be true.
• So if firstValue is true, and secondValue false, then the condition is false, otherwise it is true (see table below).

The results of the bitwise logical operations, where A and B are operands, and T and F indicate that a bit is set or not set:
Operands Operations
A B NOT B A AND B A OR B A XOR B A EQV B A IMP B
T T F T T F T T
T F T F T T F F
F T F F T T F T
F F T F F F T T
Relational Operations return negative one (-1, all bits set) and zero (0, no bits set) for true and false, respectively.
This allows relational tests to be inverted and combined using the bitwise logical operations.
