The bool function allows folding over boolean values.

This is comparable to the maybe or either functions on their respective types.

The bool function is a replacement for the build-in if then else-syntax. However, since it is a function, it can be partially applied and passed around to higher order functions, like so:

ghci> :m + Data.Bool.Extras
ghci> let yesOrNo = bool "no" "yes"
ghci> map yesOrNo [True, False, True]
["yes", "no", "yes"]

Note that the arguments to bool are in the opposite order of the if then else-syntax; First the false value, then the true value, and finally the boolean.
