Operator

|=(_:_:)

Stores the result of performing a bitwise OR operation on the two given values in the left-hand-side variable.

Declaration

static func |= (lhs: inout UInt16, rhs: UInt16)

Parameters

lhs

An integer value.

rhs

Another integer value.

Discussion

A bitwise OR operation results in a value that has each bit set to 1 where one or both of its arguments have that bit set to 1. For example:

var x: UInt8 = 5          // 0b00000101
let y: UInt8 = 14         // 0b00001110
x |= y                    // 0b00001111
