Return bool or 1/0

What would be the correct (or more efficient) way to return a value of a function?

If you just need true or false then use bool. Bool takes 1 byte, while int uses 4. Doesn't make that much difference in efficiency on most systems, but it also makes your code more readable in my opinion.

most programming languages use boolean, but for example in C you don't have boolean so you can use 1 for true and 0 for false
