Syntax

result = expression1 And expression2

Arguments

  • result
    Any numeric variable.

  • expression1

Remarks

If, and only if, both expressions evaluate to True, result is True. If either expression evaluates to False, result is False. The logical operation is not short-circuited. All expressions are evaluated.
