    Which tense is correct?

    Are these sentences both grammatically correct? If they are both grammatically correct, what's the difference in meanings?

    Case A:
    "1" will be outputed if "A" is inputted./"1" will not be outputted if "A" is not inputted.

    Case B:
    "1" is outputed if "A" is inputted./"1" is not outputted if "A" is not inputted.

    Re: Which tense is correct?

    They are grammatically correct if "output" is a verb.

    Re: Which tense is correct?

    Thank you for the reply and answer.
    If both of these cases are correct, what's the difference in meaning between these two? No difference??

    Re: Which tense is correct?

    I said:
    They are grammatically correct if "output" is a verb.
    However, I do not agree that "output" is a verb. (If is is a verb it is new to me.) I recommend rewriting those sentences.
