Bit Operations

BITAND

The BITAND() function performs a bit-wise AND operation for the two integer parameters.

Return type: Whole number (like 1, 132, 2344)
Syntax

BITAND(value; value)

Parameters
Comment: First number
Type: Whole number (like 1, 132, 2344)
Comment: Second number
Type: Whole number (like 1, 132, 2344)
Examples

BITAND(12;10) returns 8 (because decimal 12 is binary 1100, and decimal 10 is binary 1010; and 1100 "anded" with 1010 is 1000, which is integer 8).

Related Functions
 BITOR BITXOR

BITLSHIFT

The BITLSHIFT() function performs a bit-wise left shift operation of the first parameter. The number of bits to shift by is specified by the second parameter. Note that a negative number of bits to left shift by becomes a right shift.

Return type: Whole number (like 1, 132, 2344)
Syntax

BITLSHIFT(value; shift size)

Parameters
Comment: First number
Type: Whole number (like 1, 132, 2344)

BITOR(12;10) returns 14 (because decimal 12 is binary 1100, and decimal 10 is binary 1010; and 1100 "ored" with 1010 is 1110, which is integer 14).

Related Functions
 BITAND BITXOR

BITRSHIFT

The BITRSHIFT() function performs a bit-wise right shift operation of the first parameter. The number of bits to shift by is specified by the second parameter. Note that a negative number of bits to right shift by becomes a left shift.

Return type: Whole number (like 1, 132, 2344)
Syntax

FLOOR

Round a number x down to the nearest multiple of the second parameter, Significance.

The FLOOR() function rounds x down (towards zero) to the nearest multiple of Significance. The default value for Significance is 1, if x is positive. It is -1, if the value is negative, which means rounding up to the nearest integer. If mode is given and not equal to zero, the amount of x is rounded toward zero to a multiple of significance and then the sign applied. Otherwise, it rounds toward negative infinity. If any of the two parameters x or Significance is zero, the result is zero.

Return type: A floating point value (like 1.3, 0.343, 253 )
