Good article for beginners in microproccesor programing

Bits are how you make things work...
You need to know how to use them...
This does a pretty good job of showing you...
You should read it for your own good...

just a FYI,
this link appears to have moved here: http://andrey.thedotcommune.com/bitmasking.html

i strongly suggest anyone who considers themselves an "intermediate" microcontroller programmer to read and digest.

Shouldn't you already know this if your an intermediate in microprocessor programming?

many people moving to embedded platforms from PC based programming will not have had much need for bitmasking. it depends on what kind of application you have been working on.
but yes. you should already know this. that's why i posted the comment.

i used the word "intermediate" because i didn't want to scare people away from trying a C microcontroller project as it is perfectly possible to make use of other peoples libraries without this level of knowledge.
