I wouldn't explain it that way. False is definitely zero. VB's If-Then
evaluation seems to be
If (SomeExpression IS NOT FALSE) Then
Because of this, any non-zero value for the expression will trigger the THEN
code block. A small distinction perhaps, but it is wrong to think of TRUE as
any non-zero value. One way to see that is by means of logical expression
X = 4
Print (X = 4)
which will print True BUT
X = 4
doesn't -- which, of course, is good <g>.
