The true module outputs a truthy value which is +1 , some modules r accept a true value and a +1 ( intpretted as true )
The constant value outputs a constant value
ANd what about the signal module , does it also output a constant signal .. like a dc signal infor audio
What are the fundamental differences , sometines it's just hit and miss and confusing

signal - This is a generic type that contains no further information. Signals are commonly used to indicate events. For example, a metronome module will periodically send out signal objects. They are like the bang in Pure Data or MAX.

boolean - These can either be true or false. All data types can be implicitly converted to boolean values. 0, 0.0, undefined, the empty string, empty array, empty map, and empty tuple are all false. Every other value is true.

Booleans values can also be coerced into numeric values, with true being 1, and false being 0.
