Windows comes with two types that represent a Boolean variable (TRUE or FALSE.) Both represent FALSE if 0 and TRUE if non-zero.
The big difference you need to care when working with that two Booleans is that BOOL defined as int which is 32 bits (4 bytes) on 32-bit environments and 16 bits (2 bytes) on 16-bit environments. BOOLEAN on the other hand, defined as BYTE, which in turn defined as unsigned char. Thus, BOOLEAN only occupies 8 bits (1 byte) from memory.
Although you can convert between them easily, BOOL is much common than BOOLEAN and it is very popular in the Windows API.
