  • JavaScript

    Num yes Str no

    >>> !! 0 false >>> !! "0" true

  • Python

    Num yes Str no

    >>> not not 0 False >>> not not "0" True

  • Ruby

    Num no Str no

    irb(main):002:0> !! 0 => true irb(main):003:0> !! "0" (irb):3: warning: string literal in condition => true

  • Perl

    Num yes Str yes

    DB<102> !! 0 => "" DB<103> !! "0" => ""
