-- Although in general the boolean operations on arrays of booleans are
-- identical to operations on arrays of unsigned words of the same size,
-- for the "not" operator this is not the case as False is typically
-- represented by 0 and true by 1.
function "not" (Item : Vectors.Vector) return Vectors.Vector;
-- The three boolean operations "nand", "nor" and "nxor" are needed
-- for cases where the compiler moves boolean array operations into
-- the body of the loop that iterates over the array elements.
-- Note the following equivalences:
-- (not X) or (not Y) = not (X and Y) = Nand (X, Y)
-- (not X) and (not Y) = not (X or Y) = Nor (X, Y)
-- (not X) xor (not Y) = X xor Y
-- X xor (not Y) = not (X xor Y) = Nxor (X, Y)
