Bitwise logical addition (disjunction). Set the output as a result of logical addition, applied to each pair of bits, which are at the same positions in the binary representation of the input values.

In other words, the resulting bit is equal to:

- "1" if at least one of respective bits of input value are equal to "1"
- "0" if both bits of the pair is "0".

For example:

Value X | = | 27 | = | 0x001B | = | 0b0000000000011011 |

Value Y | = | 58 | = | 0x003A | = | 0b0000000000111010 |

Result | = | 59 | = | 0x003B | = | 0b0000000000111011 |

## Features[edit]

Operation 'Bitwise OR' is used for setting a particular bit or field of a few bits in the binary number.
