Felix Geisendorfer has come across something interesting in his coding - an issue where false might not be false in the right situation.
So far I've always thought false would evaluate to 0 when used in a computational context. Turns out that this isn't always the case.
His code example tries to check is a false value is greater than or equal to a negative number. The result, however (despite the thinking that false is a zero value) turns out to be false.
I randomly stumbled upon this when arguing with Mariano today if setting Model::recursive to 'false' has the same effect as setting it to '-1'. Turns out that cake uses a statement like this: if ($recursive > -1) in the core which in turn makes -1 and false do exactly the same thing.
