bool Falcon::VMachine::functionalEval ( const Item itm  ) 

Evaluate the item in a functional context. The function return either true or false, evaluating the item as a funcional token. # If the item is an array, it is recursively scanned. # If the item is a callable item (including callable arrayas), it is called and then the return value is evaluated in a non-functional context (plain evaluation). # In all the other cases, the item is evaluated in a non-functional context.

More simply, if the item is callable is called, and is result is checked for Falcon truth value. If not, it's simply checked.

The return value will be in regA(), and it's the "reduced" list of items.

The function returns true if it has to stop for frame evaluation, false if the caller can loop. When the function returns true, the caller must immediately return to the calling frame; in case it needs to continue processing, it must install a frame return handler to be called back when the frame created by functionalEval is done.

false if the caller can proceed, true if it must return.
