Bits

 Or
 compute bit-wise or of the inputs

 Calling Sequence Or(num1, num2) Or(num1, num2, options)

Parameters

 num1 - an integer num2 - an integer options - optional arguments

Description

 • The Or command computes the bit-wise logical or of the inputs returning in terms of a number. All bits that are set in either of the inputs will be set in the output.
 • Or takes one optional argument, bits=number that specifies the number of bits to be considered in the input. All bits past the specified number are truncated.
 • Use with negative inputs requires that bits be set, either as an argument to Or or globally via Settings. If both inputs are positive, no truncation need occur, so bits is computed as the largest most significant bit between the two inputs.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{Bits}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{num1}≔\mathrm{Join}\left(\left[1,1,0,0,0,1,0,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,1\right]\right)$
 ${\mathrm{num1}}{:=}{30371}$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{num2}≔\mathrm{Join}\left(\left[0,1,1,0,0,1,0,0,1,0,0,0,1,0,1\right]\right)$
 ${\mathrm{num2}}{:=}{20774}$ (2)

The following number represents the Or of num1,num2

 > $\mathrm{num3}≔\mathrm{Join}\left(\left[1,1,1,0,0,1,0,1,1,1,1,0,1,1,1\right]\right)$
 ${\mathrm{num3}}{:=}{30631}$ (3)

Compare:

 > $\mathrm{num3},\mathrm{Or}\left(\mathrm{num1},\mathrm{num2}\right)$
 ${30631}{,}{30631}$ (4)

Negative inputs and outputs

 > $\mathrm{Settings}\left(\mathrm{defaultbits}=8,\mathrm{negativeout}=\mathrm{true}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{Or}\left(-1,12\right)$
 ${-}{1}$ (5)
 > $\mathrm{Or}\left(-64,-128\right)$
 ${-}{64}$ (6)
