View Source Bitwise (Elixir v1.14.0-dev)

A set of functions that perform calculations on bits.

All bitwise functions work only on integers; otherwise an ArithmeticError is raised. The functions band/2, bor/2, bsl/2, and bsr/2 also have operators, respectively: &&&/2, |||/2, <<</2, and >>>/2.

guards

Guards

All bitwise functions can be used in guards:

iex> odd? = fn
...>   int when Bitwise.band(int, 1) == 1 -> true
...>   _ -> false
...> end
iex> odd?.(1)
true

All functions in this module are inlined by the compiler.
