In this paper, it is proved that if the space is a compact Hausdorff space, then the set of real valued continuous functions is also a distributive lattice, where fVg is defined by fVg(x) = f(x)Vg(x) for all x, and f^g is defined similarly. It is also proved that the lattice structure of the set of continuous functions determines the topological spsace up to homeomorphism.
