Jump to navigationJump to search## bitwiseand() Function

Performs a bitwise 'and' operation of the {number} arguments by taking the binary representation of each of the numbers and performing the logical and operation on each of the bits.

**Logical "and" Table**

Bit1 | Bit2 | Result |

0 | 0 | 0 |

0 | 1 | 0 |

1 | 1 | 1 |

### Usage

```
[h: val = band(num, num, ...)]
[h: val = bitwiseand(num, num, ...)]
```

### Examples

`[r: band(1,0)]`

Returns 0.

`[r: band(1,1)]`

Returns 1.

`[r: band(3, 5]`

Returns 1. 3 in binary is 011 and 5 in binary is 101, the bitwise 'and' of these values is 001 in binary which is 1 in decimal.

`[r: band(20, 12)]`

Returns 4.

20 in binary is 10100 and 12 in binary is 01100, the bitwise 'and' of these values is 00100 in binary which is 4 in decimal.
