Dirty Tricks

Old Hairy

In the section 'Boolean Tricks' there are some gross errors. This section purports to express certain Boolean functions in terms of the NAND function.

The expression given for A AND B is the same as that for A NOR B, and as the AND function and the NOR function are different, one must be wrong (it's the NOR).

Similarly, the expression for A XOR B is that same as that for A XNOR B, and XNOR is wrong.

Can this be fixed?
