trailing_ones
trailing_ones(x::Integer) > Integer
Number of ones trailing the binary representation of x
.
julia> trailing_ones(3)
2
Examples

Count trailing ones in a binary number:
julia> trailing_ones(3) 2
This example counts the number of ones trailing the binary representation of the number
3
. 
Find trailing ones in a larger binary number:
julia> trailing_ones(100) 0
It returns the count of trailing ones in the binary representation of the number
100
.  Handle zero as input:
julia> trailing_ones(0) 0
When the input number is zero, it correctly returns zero as there are no trailing ones.
Common mistake example:
julia> trailing_ones(7.5)
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching trailing_ones(::Float64)
In this example, the input to the trailing_ones
function is a floatingpoint number. It's important to note that trailing_ones
only accepts integers as the input. Ensure that the input is of the correct type to avoid such errors.
