You can use also many functions like :

The ? is use to test if var1 is integer and result is #t (t from true).

Also we can define a var named word1 = “hello”.

The #f show us the result of (integer? word1) is false.

And if we need to create random values then is used random function.

Gimp also have many functions.You can see all if go to menu Help Procedure Browser.
