## Examples

## Arguments

### initial-value [int]

Optional

Sets an initial value to be OR-ed with a number received in the left inlet.

## Attributes

## Messages

### bang

In left inlet: Performs the calculation with the numbers currently stored. If there is no argument, | initially holds .

### int

#### Arguments

input
[int]

In left inlet: Outputs a number composed of all those bits which are 1 in either of the two numbers.

### (inlet1)

#### Arguments

comparison-number
[int]

In right inlet: The number is stored for combination with a number received in the left inlet.

### float

#### Arguments

input
[float]

Converted to

. ### set

#### Arguments

set-input
[int]

In left inlet: The word

followed by a number will set the input to the bitwise-or operation without causing output (a successive will output the result). ### list

#### Arguments

input
[number]

comparison-value [number]

comparison-value [number]

In left inlet: Combines the first and second numbers bit-by-bit, and outputs a number composed of all those bits which are 1 in either of the two numbers.

## Output

### int

All the non-zero bits of the two numbers received in the inlets are combined. If a bit is 1 in either one of the numbers, it will be 1 in the output number, otherwise it will be 0 in the output number.
