Re: bitfield advantages

I was wondering if you can use the | operator on two identicle
bit-fields, identical meaning that they are of the same type.

If so, then they could be very usefull, but if I had to overload the | operator,
then I see definate performance problems as apposed to using
regular old ints or long ints.

All my c and c++ books are very sparse on info pertaining to bitfields...

perhaps I'll go buy another one :)
