What is Bitwise Structure?
The smallest type is of 8 bits (char).
Sometimes we need only a single bit.
For instance, storing the status of the lights in 8 rooms:
We need to define an array of at least 8 chars.
If the light of room 3 is turned on the value of
the third char is 1, otherwise 0.
Total array of 64 bits.
It is better to define only 8 bits since a bit can also store the values 0 or 1.
But the problem is that there is no C type which is
1 bit long (char is the longer with 1 byte).
Solution: define a char (8 bits) but refer to each bit separately.
operators, introduced by the C language, provide one of its more powerful tools for using and manipulating memory. They give the language the real power of a “low-level language”.
Accessing bits directly is fast and efficient, especially if you are writing a real-time application.
A single bit cannot be accessed directly,
since it has no address of its own.
The language introduces the
operators, which help in manipulating a
single bit of a byte.
operators may be used on integral types only (unsigned types are preferable).
All these operators can be suffixed with =
For instance a &= b; is the same as a = a & b;
