# How can I perform binary operations?

## Recommended Posts

I'm searching a way to do xor and shift and if possible also other operations. Thanks in advance for the replies.

Thanks but I'm looking for a way to know if the highest bit of a value is set. For example 224=‭1110 0000‬ that is different from ‭14‬= 0000 1110

Notice how different this is from " I'm searching a way to do xor and shift and if possible also other operations."? Providing people with all the information they need helps us help you

How about a detailed explanation and example of what you would like to accomplish?

Sorry I was wrong. I'm looking for operation that can be done on binary and not on decimal values, for that I changed the question. The next time I'll provide more information. The script I'm doing is this:

```\$Binary=4
\$Binary1=10
;The goal of this operation is to control if the highest bit is set to 1 but for now doesn't contain anything
If Then
\$Result=BitXOR(\$Binary, \$Binary1)
Else
;In the case the highest bit isn't set to 1, it do a normal addition
\$Result=\$Binary+\$Binary1
EndIf```

That I'm making to avoid to create value that exceed 8 bit

```Func _BitTest(\$value, \$bit)
Return BitAND(BitShift(\$value, \$bit),1)
EndFunc```

Highest bit is an ambiguous concept: it all depends which max bitsize your integers of interest are and if you have to handle negative values as well (and then how).

Easy: check whether \$Binary+\$Binary1> 255 or not

They're the same thing, just represented differently. 1101 in binary is the same as 13 in decimal. So anything you want to do in binary can be done with decimal input, or vice versa.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
