adj.
1. Of or relating to a logical combinatorial system treating variables, such as propositions and computer logic elements, through the operators AND, OR, NOT, and XOR: a browser that supports Boolean searches.
2. Of or relating to a data type or variable in a programming language that can have one of two values, true or false.
