And () is a dyadic scalar boolean function which tests if both arguments are true: it returns 1 if both are 1 and 0 if one or both are 0. It represents the logical conjunction in Boolean logic. In many APLs, And is a special case of the LCM function.

0 1
0 0 0
1 0 1


The following shows all possible combinations of inputs as a Boolean function.

      0 0 1 1  0 1 0 1
0 0 0 1

When combined with Reduce, And can be used to test if every value in a Boolean vector is true.

      / 1 1 1 1 1
      / 1 0 0 1 1
