Hi David, > > > Even Fortran has a LOGICAL data type! Yes it does. And modern versions (> F90) allow users to define their own types in terms of fundamental data types, improving readability & code even more. However, the usual way that this sort of thing is coded in Fortran (usually F77), is as a series of cryptic arguments to subroutines (eg LinPack); logical variables are rarely used, but I'm happy to be contradicted. My point was that while this can be done in Mathematica, a better way might be to use options & logical variables such as PlotJoined->True, PrintOutput->False, Or even ShowWorking->False, Brief or All. Advantages are readability & ease of use since the options can be used in any order & in some cases, omitted entirely. Regards, Dave.
