A string giving the literal bit representation of a number.


  1. Get the bit representation of an integer:

    julia> bits(10)

    This example returns the bit representation of the number 10.

  2. Observe the binary representation of a floating-point number:

    julia> bits(3.14)

    It returns the bit representation of the floating-point number 3.14.

  3. Check the binary encoding of a negative number:
    julia> bits(-7)

    This example returns the bit representation of the negative number -7.

Common mistake example:

julia> bits("hello")
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching bits(::String)

In this example, the bits function is applied to a string, which results in a MethodError. It's important to note that the bits function is designed to work with numeric types, not strings. Ensure that the input to bits is a valid number to avoid such errors.
