git-35c49eeae7e71e8554f27958a16405397c69b552.tar.bz2 config_boolean() -> config_bool()
This patch renames config_boolean() to config_bool() for consistency with the commandline interface and because it is shorter but still obvious. ;-) It also changes the return value from some obscure string to real Perl boolean, allowing for clean user code. Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <>
