## llang

It's a pleasure to introduce you llang - an interpreter of well-formed formulas in propositional calculus written in JavaScript (both browser and node.js). Use is simple, just pass a formula and input evaluation for variables in formula and see the result. And there will be more! I am going to make some extension functions such as truth table generator, function to decide whether formula is either tautology, contradiction or satisfiable or one formula is semantic consequence/equivalence of another or not.

## Operators

### Negation

Unary operator which returns true if the following variables is false and vice versa.

Symbol: `!`

A R
0 1
1 0

### Disjunction

Binary operator which returns false if both operands are false, otherwise returns true.

Symbol: `|`

Truth table:

A B R
0 0 0
0 1 1
1 0 1
1 1 1

### Conjunction

Binary operator which returns true if both operands are true, otherwise returns false.

Symbol: `&`

Truth table:

A B R
0 0 0
0 1 0
1 0 0
1 1 1

### Implication

Binary operator which returns false if the first operand are true and the second is false, otherwise returns true.

Symbol: `->`

Truth table:

A B R
0 0 1
0 1 1
1 0 0
1 1 1

### Equivalence

Binary operator which returns true if both operands have the same value, otherwise returns false.

Symbol: `<->`

Truth table:

A B R
0 0 1
0 1 0
1 0 0
1 1 1

## Variables

Variables are representations of values which will be replaced by actual values passed in evaluation argument. Valid values are letters from A to Z. Evaluation will be used on variables in alphabetical order. It doesn't matter if you use upper case or lower case letters.

## Parentheses

Parentheses set priority of evaluation. They delimit the subexpression which will be evaluated with higher priority.

## See it in action!

You want to try it but you are lazy to write a small script which uses this library? No problem! There are two files in `evaluations` folder. The first is a small node script which runs in console. Just run `node <path/to/script>/node.js` and type your formulas. The second file is an HTML page which asks you using JavaScript prompts. Just open it in your browser.

## Weaknesses

There is poor syntax error detection yet. It will be improved but for this moment, write your formulas correctly.
