  • Mood:

On boolean values, and the number of letters in words representing them

simont was annoyed that

almost any pair of words you can think of to represent boolean values have different numbers of letters, so that it's inconvenient to line them up in tabular layouts in a fixed-width font. TRUE/FALSE, YES/NO, ON/OFF. All of them out by one. Even if you look further afield to things like YEP/NOPE and YEAH/NAH, you don't find a matching pair.

One suggestion was YA RLY / NO WAI :)
