# bitor

OR applied to binary representation of input arguments

### Calling Sequence

`[z]=bitor(x,y)`

### Arguments

x

scalar/vector/matrix of positives integers

y

scalar/vector/matrix of positives integers

z

scalar/vector/matrix of positives integers

### Description

Given `x` and `y` two positives integers, this function returns `z` the decimal number whose the binary form is the OR of the binary representations of `x` and `y` (`x`, `y` and `z` have the same size). If dimension of `x` is superior than 1 then `z(i)` is equal to `bitor(x(i),y(i)).`

### Examples

```// example 1 :
// '110000' : is the binary representation of 48
// '100101' : is the binary representation of 37
// '110101' : is the binary representation for the OR applied to the binary forms 48 and 37
// so the decimal number corresponding to the OR  applied to binary forms 48 and 37 is : 53
x=48; y=37
z=bitor(x,y)

// example 2 :
x=[12,45]; y=[25,49]
z=bitor(x,y)```
