$variable_name2 = 32;
  
//$variable_name1 is boolean, gives TRUE
if (is_bool($variable_name1))
  
echo "Variable is a boolean. ";
else
echo 'Variable is not a boolean. ';
  
//$variable_name2 is boolean, gives FALSE
if (is_bool($variable_name2))
  
echo '32 is a boolean. ';
else
echo '32 is not a boolean.';
?>

Output:

Variable is a boolean. 
32 is not a boolean.

Example 2:

}
echo square(TRUE) ." ";   // outputs '1'.
