∨ (logical or)
The logical disjunction (or) operator.
Syntax

p ∨ q[ ∨ ...]

p, q, ...
are booleans

Description
∨
is the logical disjunction operator. The truth table for ∨
is as follows:
qp

false  true 

false  false  true 
true  true  true 
∨
is an nary operator implemented by the or
function.
Boolean shortcircuit evaluation is employed: This means that the operands of the disjunction are evaluated sequentially from left to right and stops as soon as true
is returned.
In other words, q
isn’t evaluated in p ∨ q
if p
is true
.
