echo $show_bio | 'true' ? 'false';

i totally forgot how to do the above but i've done it a dozen times.

$show_bio is boolean --- i remember doing something like above where depending on whether it's TRUE  or FALSE it will print the appropriate text.

i don't even know how to search for it online.

so my questions are ---> What is the correct format?

and what would it be under in the PHP manual?

thanks for your help
