# bitset

Set bit at specific location

## Description

C = bitset(A,bit) returns the value of A with position bit set to 1 (on).

example

C = bitset(A,bit,V) returns the value of A with position bit set to V.

## Examples

Begin with an unsigned fixed-point fi number with a value of 5, word length 4, and fraction length 0.

a = fi(5,0,4,0);
disp(bin(a))
0101

Set the bit at position 4 to 1 (on).

c = bitset(a,4);
disp(bin(c))
1101

Consider the following fixed-point vector with word length 4 and fraction length 0.

a = fi([0 1 8 2 4],0,4,0);
disp(bin(a))
0000   0001   1000   0010   0100

In each element of vector a, set the bits at position 2 to 1.

c = bitset(a,2,1);
disp(bin(c))
0010   0011   1010   0010   0110

Consider the following fixed-point scalar with a value of 5.

a = fi(5,0,4,0);
disp(bin(a))
0101

Set the bit at position fi(2) to 1.

c = bitset(a,fi(2),1);
disp(bin(c))
0111

Create a fi object with a value of pi.

a = fi(pi);
disp(bin(a))
0110010010001000

In this case, a is signed with a word length of 16.

Create a vector of the bit positions in a that you want to set to on. Then, get the binary representation of the resulting fi vector.

bit = fi([15,3,8,2]);
c = bitset(a,bit);
disp(bin(c))
0110010010001000   0110010010001100   0110010010001000   0110010010001010

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Input values, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array of fixed-point fi objects. If any of A, bit, or V are nonscalar, the other inputs must be scalar or arrays of the same size. If A has a signed numerictype, the bit representation of the stored integer is in two's complement representation.

Data Types: fi
Complex Number Support: Yes

Bit position, specified as an integer or integer array of fi objects or built-in data types. If any of A, bit, or V are nonscalar, the other inputs must be scalar or arrays of the same size. The values of bit must be between 1 and the word length of A, inclusive. The LSB, the right-most bit, is specified by bit index 1. The MSB, the left-most bit, is specified by the word length of A.

a = fi(pi,0,8);
a.bin
ans =

'11001001'

Data Types: single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64 | fi

Bit value of A at index bit, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array of fi objects or built-in data types. If any of A, bit, or V are nonscalar, the other inputs must be scalar or arrays of the same size. V can have values of 0 or 1. Any value other than 0 is automatically set to 1.

Data Types: single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64 | fi
Complex Number Support: Yes

## Output Arguments

collapse all

Output array, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array of fi objects.

• If A, bit, and V are all scalars, then C is also a scalar.

• If any of A, bit, or V is an array, then C is the same size as that array.
