Function to set a quality control bit given a scalar or array of values and a bit number.

  • array (int list of int or numpy array of int) – The bitpacked array to set the bit number.

  • bit_number (int) – The bit (or test) number to set starting at 1.


array (int, numpy array, tuple, list) – Integer or numpy array with bit set for each element of the array. Returned in same type.


Example use setting bit 2 to an array called data:

array([2, 3, 2, 3, 6, 7, 6])
