This item was introduced in E-Prime 2.0 (188.8.131.52).
This feature provides for manipulating numeric values in E-Basic through bitwise operations. Due to restrictions of the E-Basic language, precision loss may be incurred if attempting bitwise acts via the '*', '/', 'AND', 'OR', or 'XOR' operators. Consider mitigating this with the following functions:
LShift([value], [number of bits to shift left])
RShift([value], [number of bits to shift right])
For further information on scripting using E-Basic, please refer to the E-Prime Command Reference (https://pstnet.com/ecr).
