BITLOAD assigns all values in the local bit table, or retrieves all the values.
bit-string is an ASCII string of characters which represent a hexadecimal value. It is interpreted as a bit pattern and used to assign values to the table from left to right. Assignment stops at the end of the string or when a non-hexadecimal character is found.
If the string represents less than 128 bits, the remaining bits in the table are reset to 0 (zero).
If bit-string is omitted or evaluates to null, an ASCII hex character string is returned, which defines the value of the table. Trailing zeroes in the string are truncated.
A unique table of 128 bits (numbered 1 to 128) is maintained for each process. Each bit in the table is treated as a two-state flag - the value will always be 0 (zero) or 1.
Loads the bit table with the value of ASCII hex string NEW.VALUE. After assignment, the contents of the bit table are:
Note that all values beyond the 64th bit have been reset to 0 (zero).
Loads variable TABLE.VALUE with the hexadecimal values of the bit table.
