OR applied to binary representation of input arguments

Calling Sequence




scalar/vector/matrix of positives integers


scalar/vector/matrix of positives integers


scalar/vector/matrix of positives integers


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)).


// 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

// example 2 :
x=[12,45]; y=[25,49]
