numpy.bitwise_or() in Python

numpy.bitwise_or()function is used to Compute the bit-wise OR of two array element-wise. This function computes the bit-wise OR of the underlying binary representation of the integers in the input arrays.

Syntax : numpy.bitwise_or(arr1, arr2, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting=’same_kind’, order=’K’, dtype=None, ufunc ‘bitwise_or’)

Parameters :
arr1 : [array_like] Input array.
arr2 : [array_like] Input array.



out : [ndarray, optional] A location into which the result is stored.
  -> If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to.
  -> If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned.
**kwargs : allows you to pass keyword variable length of argument to a function. It is used when we want to handle named argument in a function.
where : [array_like, optional]True value means to calculate the universal functions(ufunc) at that position, False value means to leave the value in the output alone.

Return : [ndarray or scalar] Result. This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.
