Set bit



C = bitset(A,bit) sets bit position bit in A to 1 (on). A must be a nonnegative integer and bit must be a number between 1 and the number of bits in the floating-point integer (flint) representation of A (52 for IEEE flints). To ensure the operand is an integer, use the ceil, fix, floor, and round functions.

C = bitset(A,bit,v) sets the bit at position bit to the value v, which must be either 0 or 1.


Setting the fifth bit in the five-bit binary representation of the integer 9 (01001) yields 11001, or 25.
