Pardon the newbie question. I see this in the first part of a \DeclareCiteCommand and I'm not sure what it means. Google has not returned any joy.

Here's an example

\newbibmacro*{cite}{%
    \global\boolfalse{cbx@loccit}%
    \ifciteseen
    {....

Many thanks again for the help.

    Are you trying to do something in particular? The command says "set the boolean cbx@loccit to false globally". But I don't think that such an answer is likely to be very helpful to you. – Alan Munn Mar 6 '11 at 15:23

The \cite macro globally sets the boolean switch loccit to false. (cbx@ is biblatex's internal prefix for citation macros.) The loccit switch is used by some of the verbose bibliography/citation styles. See section 4.6.2 of the biblatex documentation for a description of \ifloccit (and the similar \ifopcit).
