I use it for flags, and also RT use it in some code for the same. But the most important use, perhaps, is when you read a binary file, in the header often you find flags in bits and you can do: bin: #{01} bt: to bitset! bin find bt 0 0-7 for bit is consistent with all computer science ;-) --- Ciao Romano
