> An example would be nice. I don't quite get it. Like, byte=0b0110, mask=0b0011, bit=0b1001 => result = 0b0001"?

Often times you have multiple variables in one register, e.g. bits 0-3 are `foo` and bits 4-7 are `bar`.

union {
    uint8_t foo:4;
    uint8_t bar:4;
} byte

Now to set `bar` in `byte` you would do `mask=0b11110000`, the if `byte=0b00000110` and `bit=0b1001` => `result = 0b10010110`.

In your example `result` would be `0b0101`.
