Return bitwise OR



C = bitor(A, B) returns the bitwise OR of arguments A and B, where A and B are unsigned integers or arrays of unsigned integers.


Example 1

The five-bit binary representations of the integers 13 and 27 are 01101 and 11011, respectively. Performing a bitwise OR on these numbers yields 11111, or 31.

Example 2
