``` operator | { associativity left precedence }```

### Declarations

func |(_: Int, rhs: Int)

Returns the result of performing a bitwise OR operation on the two given values.

A bitwise OR operation results in a value that has each bit set to `1` where one or both of its arguments have that bit set to `1`. For example:

``````let x: UInt8 = 5          // 0b00000101
let y: UInt8 = 14         // 0b00001110
let z = x | y             // 0b00001111
// z == 15``````

Parameters: lhs: An integer value. rhs: Another integer value.
