bor( first, second )
Calculates the bitwise or of two numbers.
first
The first number.

second
The second number.

Superseded by | operator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.

Examples

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

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