Generally, 2 ways:

Either multiply by the number 1
ExampleS:
=(4=4) ->Returns TRUE
=(4=4)*1 ->Returns 1

=(5=4) ->Returns FALSE
=(5=4)*1 ->Returns 0

or

Prepend two minus signs
Example:
=(4=4) ->Returns TRUE
=--(4=4) ->Returns 1

=(5=4) ->Returns FALSE
=--(5=4) ->Returns 0

Does that help?

Thank you Ron and Ken. I have been wondering how to do that for years ! but it has never been critical until now. I suppose the *1 solution is pretty obvious, even to a superannuated marine engineer, but I never managed to work it out for myself. All working tickety-boo now.
