Hi guys, reading some theoric tutorials i'm trying to create a bitstream class..... this is what i've done: class bitstream { char buffer[200]; int bit; public: bitstream() { bit=0; for(int i=0;i<sizeof(buffer);i++) buffer=0; } int bits(){return bit;} void AddBit(bool val); }; void bitstream::AddBit(bool val) { if(!val) { bit++; return; } unsigned char mask=128; int idx=(bit/8); mask=(mask>>(bit%8)); buffer[idx] |= mask; bit++; return; } now i want to do a "bitcopy" method....but can't understand how it should work....can anyone explain me?

Probably not, unless you specify what bitcopy does, or at least what signature it has.

Right now, your class can store exactly one bit of information.
