Okay, in the readme it says

Option "NoLogo" "Boolean"

if I'm not mistaken, boolean would be a "Yes" or a "No", a "True" or a "False".. Correct?

I think elsewhere in the doc it says that booleans can be any of true/false, yes/no or 1/0

Who on earth made up a word "boolean"? Can't they just say:
Yes/No 'like' statement?

Ok, well I see there are more letters there, but at least the average user can understand it

Cool

I suppose it was easier to invent a new word that means XOR since not everyone would understand that, but finding a new and strange word might prompt people to go look it up... or maybe not

Hopefully, you were just joking.

But, for those who don't know, here's a paper by George Boole, basically the father of Boolean Logic. (notice the year, 1848) I don't purport to understand all of that paper, but it's where our boolean logic comes from.

Boolean Logic

regards...

Edit: Oh, and, of course, typically 1 is boolean true and 0 is boolean false, isn't it....

Yep, as it is in the above case:
Option "NoLogo" "1" It is true that you want no logo.
