in reply to Calling a subroutine within a conditional

Peripheral to the actual question, do you really want to use the strings "TRUE" and "FALSE"? Normally it's easier and more idiomatic to just use values like (numeric) '1' and '0'. If this interfaces with something external that really wants the strings, it can be cleaner to just convert at the interface between the two.

Or not, of course. Circumstances do alter cases. But as a rule...

    I will convert to 1 and 0. I used "TRUE" and "FALSE" for clarity at this moment in time, just as an aid to help me understand my own code.
