# bitget

Get bit at specified position

## Syntax

``b = bitget(A,bit)``
``b = bitget(A,bit,assumedtype)``

## Description

example

````b = bitget(A,bit)` returns the bit value at position `bit` in integer array `A`.```

example

````b = bitget(A,bit,assumedtype)` assumes that `A` is of `assumedtype`.```

## Examples

collapse all

Find the difference in the binary representation between the maximum integer of signed and unsigned integers.

```a1 = intmax('int8'); a2 = intmax('uint8'); b1 = bitget(a1,8:-1:1)```
```b1 = 1x8 int8 row vector 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ```
`b2 = bitget(a2,8:-1:1)`
```b2 = 1x8 uint8 row vector 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ```

The signed integers require a bit to accommodate negative integers.

Find the 8-bit representation of a negative number.

```A = -29; b = bitget(A,8:-1:1,'int8')```
```b = 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 ```

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Input values, specified as an array. `A` can be a scalar or an array of the same size as `bit`.

• If `A` is a double array, and `assumedtype` is not specified, then MATLAB® treats `A` as an unsigned 64-bit integer.

• If `assumedtype` is specified, then all elements in `A` must have integer values within the range of `assumedtype`.

Data Types: `double` | `int8` | `int16` | `int32` | `int64` | `uint8` | `uint16` | `uint32` | `uint64`

Bit position, specified as an integer or integer array. `bit` can be a scalar or an array of the same size as `A`. `bit` must be between 1 (the least-significant bit) and the number of bits in the integer class of `A`.

Data Types: `double` | `int8` | `int16` | `int32` | `int64` | `uint8` | `uint16` | `uint32` | `uint64`

Assumed data type of `A`, specified as `'uint64'`, `'uint32'`, `'uint16'`, `'uint8'`, `'int64'`, `'int32'`, `'int16'`, or `'int8'`.

• If `A` is a double array, then `assumedtype` can specify any valid integer type, but defaults to `'uint64'`.

• If `A` is an integer type array, then `assumedtype` must specify that same integer type.

Data Types: `char`

## Output Arguments

collapse all

Bit value at `bit`, returned as an array of `0`s and `1`s. `b` is the same data type as `A`.

• If `A` and `bit` are scalars, then `b` is also a scalar.

• If either `A` or `bit` is an array, then `b` is the same size as that array.
