Description

The examples for BitOR, BitAnd, Bit* are very hard to comprehend for us non mathematicians/programers; they do not provide very good example use.

Useable examples:

; BitAnd
Local $x = 8
If BitAND($x, 8)=8 Then MsgBox(0, '', '$x contains 8')


; BitOr
Local $x = BitOR(1,4,8) ; add
If BitAND($x, 8)=8 Then MsgBox(0, '', '$x contains 8')


;BitXor
Local $x = BitOR(1,4,8)
MsgBox(0, 'before',  $x)
$x = BitXOR($x,8) ;remove 8
MsgBox(0, 'after', $x)

;etc etc..

Honestly, if you need examples to show you how to use the Bit functions then you probably don't need the Bit functions. The examples are fine. Looking at raw bits is an advanced feature anyway.

That answer is unacceptable.
