While I'm almost certain these already exist on the forums., I can't actually find it as part of the Code Snippet/Samples forum.
It of course could be that I'm useless with search engines but it's weird to me that there isn't a code snipper with such.

This provides Bit (or Binary) Flagging Functions.
I need to test on Mobile, as I have a feeling that ARM uses Big Endian (reversed behaviour)... which is only specifically important if you're using these to comparison values (as you'll get the wrong numbers).
Still if you using it just for setting and getting individual bits; it will work just fine as then it doesn't matter about the order.

Update • Changed how the Bits work ( 0 - 31 instead of 1 - 32 ) and added 4 new functions Set/GetByte (4x8bit) and Set/GetShort (2x16bit)
These should help when reading files that have 8bit and 16bit values

Update 2 • Added CreateIntegerFromBytes( ) and CreateIntegerFromShorts( )

Update 3 • Added Set/GetBitRange( ) for Custom Packing Data
