Represents an ASN.1 BIT STRING value.

Parameter types of the Asn1Value super class are for octet string contents and number of bits. The last octet in the octet string contents may contain unused bits.

  • unusedBits

    The number of unused bits in the last contents octet.

bytesshared Byte[] bytes

The bits in byte list form. In the last byte, only the 8-unusedBits most significant bits are part of the bit string.

defaultTagshared actual Tag defaultTag

The tag that an instance of this class has when used without tag in a specification.

numberOfBitsshared Integer numberOfBits

The number of bits in this bit string.

unusedBitsshared Integer unusedBits

The number of unused bits in the last contents octet.

hash, string
decodeshared actual [Byte[], Integer] decode()

Subclasses must implement this if the decoded value is not stored in the instance and thus must be decoded each time Asn1Value.val is called.

If the decoded value is stored in the instance, then this method need not be refined.
