Operator

|(_:_:)

Returns the result of performing a bitwise OR operation on the two given values.

Declaration

static func | (lhs: UInt32, rhs: UInt32) -> UInt32

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:

let x: UInt8 = 5          // 0b00000101
let y: UInt8 = 14         // 0b00001110
let z = x | y             // 0b00001111
// z == 15
