 Bit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The combination of the symbols "bit" for bit and "B" for byte is also widely used in computing, and is perhaps least ambiguous.
In the IA-32 architecture, 16 bits are called a "word" (with 32 bits being a double word or dword), but other architectures have word sizes of 8, 32, 64, 80 or others.
One commonly-quoted standard, the International Electrotechnical Commission's IEC 60027, specifies that "bit" should be the unit symbol for the unit bit (e.g.

 Graphics Definitions
Bit depth might refer to the bit depth of an image, or the bit depth of a monitor.
When it refers to the bit depth of a monitor, it means that your monitor is able to show a certain number of colors at one time.
Well, as you might have noticed, the higher the bit depth, the more bits per pixel used in an image, and the more pixels used in an image, the larger the actual file is going to be.

 Bit Evaluation
This is a Herm Sprenger Hunter Liene Dee, a new trail bit for Rhythm and Luna.
I prefer non-O ring bits for trail as they are less likely to pull into the horse's mouth for a one rein emergency stop, plus I often ride on trail with a bit hanger which also allows more side to side movement.
The bit is made of cyprium, a type of metal that keeps the horse's mouth moist.

 PIC Microcontoller Bit Math Method Parity
A one-bit sum means the addition is carried out in a one-bit word, which is the same as the least significant bit of an addition using a larger word.
Bits 0 and 2 are now the parity of the upper and lower half of the nibbles.
Note that one-bit addition is the same as XOR (make a truth table for addition and XOR if you're not conviced), so even parity can also be thought of as the XOR of all the bits being tested.

 Bit Twiddling Hacks
Interleaved bits (aka Morton numbers) are useful for linearizing 2D integer coordinates, so x and y are combined into a single number that can be compared easily and has the property that a number is usually close to another if their x and y values are close.
The counts of bits set in the bytes is done in parallel, and the sum total of the bits set in the bytes is computed by multiplying by 0x1010101 and shifting right 24 bits.
The most significant bit of the 4-bit representation is replicated sinistrally to fill in the destination when we convert to a representation with more bits; this is sign extending.

 bit from FOLDOC
To toggle or "invert" a bit is to change it, either from 0 to 1 or from 1 to 0.
A bit is said to be "set" if its value is true or 1, and "reset" or "clear" if its value is false or 0.
The term "bit" first appeared in print in the computer-science sense in 1949, and seems to have been coined by early computer scientist John Tukey.

 What is bit? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
Computers are sometimes classified by the number of bits they can process at one time or by the number of bits they use to represent addresses.
For example, classifying a computer as a 32-bit machine might mean that its data registers are 32 bits wide or that it uses 32 bits to identify each address in memory.
For example, a byte is composed of 8 consecutive bits.

 DM's Esoteric Programming Languages - BIT
BIT is a programming language in which the programmer has full access to all data in its essential machine representation.
Bit values may only be assigned to bit variables, and address-of-a-bit values may only be assigned to address-of-a-bit variables; anything else is an error.
One bit of memory is reserved as a jump register.

 What is bit map? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
For simple monochrome images, one bit is sufficient to represent each dot, but for colors and shades of gray, each dot requires more than one bit of data.
To display a bit-mapped image on a monitor or to print it on a printer, the computer translates the bit map into pixels (for display screens) or ink dots (for printers).
The value of each dot (whether it is filled in or not) is stored in one or more bits of data.

 Oilfield Glossary: Term 'bit'
The bit is on the bottom of the drillstring and must be changed when it becomes excessively dull or stops making progress.
Most bits work by scraping or crushing the rock, or both, usually as part of a rotational motion.
Some bits, known as hammer bits, pound the rock vertically in much the same fashion as a construction site air hammer.

 Porting Linux applications to 64-bit systems
The effort to port an application from 32 bits to 64 bits might range from trivial to very difficult, depending on how these applications were written and maintained.
If you want to turn all the bits on, a portable way to do this is to define a signed long constant with a value of -1.
As far as language implementation is concerned, the current C language standard allows the "long long" data type to be at least 64 bits.

 Porting Chains: 64-bit Intel® Xeon® Processor to Intel® Itanium® 2 Processor
Likewise, once all code has been ported to 64 bits, the "sideways" move from the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor to the Itanium 2 processor is also relatively easy for those applications that would benefit from the extra scalability.
To put it simply, the task of migrating Linux* or Windows* applications from today's 32-bit x86 world directly to the 64-bit Itanium 2 processor would be quite difficult to handle in one step, at least for many developers; changing "bitness" and processor architectures all at the same time can be daunting.
Further, although any particular application must be either 32-bit or 64-bit in nature, a 64-bit Intel Xeon server with EM64T with a 64-bit operating system, can run both 32-bit and 64-bit apps at full speed without emulation.

If a packet with the evil bit set is fragmented by an intermediate router and the fragments themselves are not dangerous, the evil bit MUST be cleared in the fragments, and MUST be turned back on in the reassembled packet.
Benign packets have this bit set to 0; those that are used for an attack will have the bit set to 1.

 Understanding 64-bit PowerPC architecture
Capable of addressing an astronomical 18 billion GB, or 18 exabytes, of memory, 64-bit integers also accelerate complex mathematical calculations through their ability to perform calculations directly on 64-bit numbers, as well as performing multiple operations on smaller numbers within a single CPU cycle (see Resources for the definition of exabyte).
To preserve the "power of two" relationships that people have come to expect, with 8, 16, and 32-bit words in existing architectures, developers are getting 32 more bits, resulting in an address space that is 4 billion times larger than the maximum address space of a 32-bit system.
The desktop and embedded industries needed another bit.

Since the OS plays a huge role in system performance by addressing and transferring data to and from memory, when the OS supports only 32-bits when the hardware supports 64 bits, the system is still somewhat limited.

Because these Intel and AMD 64-bit chips will run the same OS and apps, development of software to take advantage of such chips--especially their ability to address larger amounts of system memory--should be faster, says Peter Glaskowsky, editor in chief of Microprocessor Report.
"This eliminates the last bit of confusion for the application developers," he adds.
By moving to include 64-bit support in more mainstream x86 CPUs, Intel has abruptly altered its often-repeated position that only large servers--such as those using its pricey Itanium chip--currently require 64-bit capabilities.
