Microsoft Specific**

Generates the bt instruction, which examines the bit in position b of address a, and returns the value of that bit.

unsigned char _bittest(  
   long const *a,  
   long b  
);  
unsigned char _bittest64(  
   __int64 const *a,  
   __int64 b  
);  

Parameters

[in] a
A pointer to the memory to examine.

[in] b
The bit position to test.

Return Value

The bit at the position specified.
