Superseded / Deprecated
The feature described in this article has been superseded by a newer feature. This feature still works in PICO-8, but the new feature should be used instead. See the article's "Superseded by..." section for specific details.
bor( first, second )
Calculates the bitwise-or of two numbers.
The first number.

The second number.

The bitwise-or of first and second.

Superseded by | operator[]

The | operator added in 0.2.0 performs the same function as bor() and is now the recommended way to do bitwise or, as it uses fewer tokens, costs fewer cycles at runtime, and runs on the real host CPU much more efficiently. Simply replace bor(a,b) with a|b.


--     0x5 = 0101 binary
--  or 0x9 = 1001 binary
-- -------
--     0xd = 1101 binary
print(bor(0x5, 0x9))  -- 13 (0xd)

print(0x5 | 0x9)      -- preferred method
