The IAND function performs a bit-wise logical AND operation on two integer arguments.

## Syntax

IAND (i,j)

*i* is an INTENT(IN) scalar or array of type INTEGER.

*j* is an INTENT(IN) INTEGER of the same kind as *i*.

If both *i* and *j* are arrays, they must be conformable.

The result is of type INTEGER. Its value is the result of performing a bit-wise logical AND operation on *i* and *j*.

## Example

i=53 ! i=00110101 binary (lowest order byte) j=45 ! j=00101101 binary (lowest order byte) k=iand(i,j) ! k=00100101 binary (lowest order byte) ! k=37 decimal
