Function bit.tobits | |

Converts a number to an array (numerically-indexed table) containing the corresponding binary bit values (the inverse of bit.tonumb) | |

Syntax | bit.tobits(int n) |

Returns | table the bits making up the value n, with entries up to the most-significant 1 bit in n |

Part of | ComputerCraft |

API | bit |

## Examples

Example | |

Convert the number 18 into its binary representation (10010) | |

Code |
for k, v in pairs(bit.tobits(18)) do print(k, ", ", v) end |

Output |
1, 0 2, 1 3, 0 4, 0 5, 1 |

As of ComputerCraft 1.42 the bit library has moved to Java code, and as such this function is no longer required or included.
