Java BitSet | intersects()

BitSet is a class defined in the java.util package. It creates an array of bits represented by 0s and 1s.

Syntax

public boolean intersects(BitSet set)

Parameter: The method accepts a mandatory parameter set, which is the BitSet to be checked for intersection.



Returns: The method returns a boolean indicating whether this BitSet intersects the specified BitSet

Explanation: The method returns true if the specified BitSet has any bits set to true that are also set to true in this BitSet, otherwise false is returned.

Examples:

Input : 
set1 : {1, 2, 4}
set2 : {}

Output : 
false
filter_none
