1943. Unspecified meaning of “bit”

Section: 11.4.10  [class.bit]     Status: CD5     Submitter: Hubert Tong     Date: 2014-02-13

[Adopted at the November, 2018 meeting as part of paper P1236R1.]

CWG decided at the 2014-06 (Rapperswil) meeting to address only a limited subset of the questions raised by issues 1857 and 1861. This issue is a placeholder for the remaining questions, such as defining a “bit” in terms of a value of 2n, specifying whether a bit-field has a sign bit, etc.
