This Flash Forum article provides instructions and resources for producing customized truth table applications. This includes classes for parsing and evaluating expressions using simple propositional connectives and, or, not, implies and iff.
The compressed file truth_table_tutorial.zip contains all templates and code referenced within the article, and the brief Developer's Guide ( truth_tables_guide.pdf ) gives detailed instructions for some specific customization tasks.
Within this article, there is a short description of each of the templates including active versions to demonstrate the functionality of each. In addition, we outline some of the specific customizations that are addressed within the Developer's Guide. One template includes the use of an XML data file to provide truth table exercises.
