What Is Bit Flag?

Bit Flag, which is also known as bit field, is used in programming and developing to create a data structure. It is used to store sequences of bits in a way so each bit or whole groups of bits can be accessed and addressed by a computer or program. In programming languages like C or C++, Bit Flags are used to store more than one boolean value in one byte or a whole set of bytes. Usually, they are represented as binary.
