Lost Boolean Operator?

Binary Boolean Operator: The Lost Levels

From the post:

The most widely known of these four siblings is operator number 11. This operator is called the “material conditional”. It is used to test if a statement fits the logical pattern “P implies Q”. It is equivalent to !P || Q by the material implication.

I only know one language that implementes this operation: VBScript.

The post has a good example of why material conditional is useful.

Will your next language have a material conditional operator?

I first saw this in Pete Warden’s Five short links for April 3, 2014.
