Bitwise union of two numbers

|

Description

Performs a bit-by-bit OR of two numbers (expressed in binary for the task). Outputs a number composed of all those bits which are 1 in either of the two numbers.

Examples

All non-zero bits are combined......... Can be used to pack two numbers into one int

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 0.

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 int.

set

Arguments

set-input [int]
In left inlet: The word set followed by a number will set the input to the bitwise-or operation without causing output (a successive bang will output the result).

list

Arguments

input [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.
