bits.OnesCount() Function in Golang with Examples
  • Last Updated : 19 Apr, 2020

Go language provides inbuilt support for bits to implement bit counting and manipulation functions for the predeclared unsigned integer types with the help of bits package. This package provides OnesCount() function which is used to find the number of one bits in a. To access the OnesCount() function you need to add a math/bits package in your program with the help of the import keyword.

Syntax:

func OnesCount(a uint) int

Parameters: This function takes one parameter of uint type, i.e., a.
Return Value: This function returns the total number of one bits that are used to represent a.

Example 1:

// Golang program to illustrate bits.OnesCount() Function
package main
  
import (
    "fmt"
    "math/bits"
)
  
// Main function
func main() {
  
    // Using OnesCount() function
    a := bits.OnesCount(3)
    fmt.Printf("Total number of one bits "+
     "that are used to represent %d: %d", 3, a)
  
}

Output:

Total number of one bits that are used to represent 3: 2

    a2 := bits.OnesCount(12)
    fmt.Printf("OnesCount(%b) = %d\n", 12, a2)
  
}

Output:

OnesCount(101) = 2
OnesCount(1100) = 2
