Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

### It's too simple to be awarded full marks. Expand it

/**
* @return true | false
* @param \$val bool The bool to invert
* @desc Returns the
*/
function invert_bool(\$val){
if(\$val == true)
return false;
if(\$val == false)
return true;
}

Let's see how much we can earn "by the hour" by increasing the lines of code of the above example.

So

return !(\$val);

wouldn't suffice then.

Congratulations, IanH., you win the contract.

here's my one and only contribution to this exercise.

function invert_bool(\$val)
{
bool retVal = false;
if(\$val == true)
retVal = false;
else
{
if(\$val == false)
retVal == true;
else
retVal == false;
}
return retVal;
}

Right Simon,
One-liners are out of question.

I want documented answers [gnu style], with hyperlinks to describe every darn thing.

try{
if(\$val.toString().equals(true))
{
return false;
}
else if(\$val.toString().notEquals(true))
{
return true
}
catch(Excception exObject)
{
print("THIS ERROR IS IMPOSSIBLE");
}
finally
{
__HALT;
}

This is roughly on-topic damn't.  Why do Indians continually want to program and/or talk about programming in the off-topic area? No wonder we outsource so much to your hard working bastards.

DARN!!
This is off-topic. Let the infidel thread burn in hell.

I'm sorry, IanH., but upon further review, management has decided to award the contract to Mat.

Congratulations, Mat. Well-done, old man.

Sadly I've actually worked places where that's not too far from the standard -- all parameters to everything had to be on a line of their own, every conditional had to be commented with what you're testing (generally with an explanation of why), and everything had 12 or so lines of comments MINIMUM at the top with copyright notices, who wrote it, who revised it, when, why, and all sorts. It was enough to make me cry...
