All About Bool.h

Question:
In my computer science class our teacher wants us to find information about Bool.h, which is supposedly in C++. No one in my class can find anything. Also, we need to find information about George Bool, the guy who made it. Do you know anything? Or maybe a place to find something?

Answer:
Bool.h is a non-standard (and, nowadays, obsolete) header file that was used in order to simulate Boolean variables in C++. In 1994 the C++ standards committee added the built-in data type bool, as well as the Boolean literals "true" and "false". Bool.h is still used with outdated compilers that don't provide built-in bool yet. Other than that, it has no use or relevance whatsoever.
