BITOR performs the bitwise OR comparison of two integers specified by numeric expressions.
The bitwise OR operation compares two integers bit by bit. It returns the bit 1 if the bit in either or both numbers is 1; else, it returns the bit 0.
If either expression1 or expression2 evaluates to the null value, null is returned.
Non integer values are truncated before the operation is performed.
The BITOR operation is performed on a 32-bit twos-complement word.
NOTE: Differences in hardware architecture can make the use of the high-order bit non portable.
* Binary value of 6 = 0110
* Binary value of 12 = 1100
This results in 1110, and the following output is displayed:
