The class template bitset<N> describes an object that can store a sequence consisting of a fixed number of bits, N.
Each bit represents either the value zero (reset) or one (set).
To toggle a bit is to change the value zero to one, or the value one to zero.
Each bit has a non-negative position pos.
When converting between an object of class bitset<N> and a value of some integral type, bit position pos corresponds to the bit value 1 << pos.
The integral value corresponding to two or more bits is the sum of their bit values.
The functions described in [template.bitset] can report three kinds of errors, each associated with a distinct exception:
