number = Strings.scanBoolean(string); (number, nextIndex) = Strings.scanBoolean(string, startIndex=1, message="");
Function scanBoolean scans the string starting at index "startIndex", checks whether the next token is a Boolean literal (i.e., is either the string "false" or "true", if converted to lower case letters) and returns its value as a Boolean number, as well as the index directly after the Boolean number. An assert is triggered, if the scanned string does not contain a Boolean literal with optional leading white space.
