Bitstring function – AND.
Synopsis
$ZBITAND(bitstring1,bitstring2)
Description
This page describes the legacy function $ZBITAND. It is described here for compatibility with legacy applications.
$ZBITAND returns a bitstring formed by the (bitstring1 AND bitstring2) operation. The length of the resulting bitstring equals the length of the shorter of the two specified bitstrings. The value of the resulting bitstring is 1 in all positions where both bitstrings held a 1, and 0 in all other positions.
Example
If bitstring1 = [0,1,1,0] and bitstring2 = [0,1,0,0], then the result of $ZBITAND would be [0,1,0,0]. That is:
Position 1: 0 and 0 = 0
Position 2: 1 and 1 = 1
Position 3: 1 and 0 = 0
Position 4: 0 and 0 = 0
