operator& (<bitset>)

Performs a bitwise AND between two bitsets.

template <size_t size>
bitset<size> operator&(
   const bitset<size>& _Left,
   const bitset<size>& _Right
);

_Left

The first of the two bitsets whose respective elements are to be combined with the bitwise AND.

_Right

The second of the two valarrays whose respective elements are to be combined with the bitwise AND.

A bitset whose elements are the result of performing the AND operation on the corresponding elements of _Left and _Right.
