C++ Bitsets give the programmer a set of bits as a data structure. Bitsets can be manipulated by various binary operators such as logical AND, OR, and so on.
The size of a C++ bitset is fixed at compile-time, and the size is the template parameter to the bitset. If you wanted to use a bitset whose size you can fix at runtime, you can use dynamic_bitset from the Boost library.
