BitOr[n1, n2, ...]
gives the bitwise OR of the integers ni.
  • Integer mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • BitOr[n1, n2, ...] yields the integer whose binary bit representation has ones at positions where the binary bit representations of any of the ni have ones.
  • For negative integers BitOr assumes a two's complement representation.
  • BitOr automatically threads over lists.
