Clears one or more bits
This takes one or more arguments. All are converted to signed 'long long' (64-bit integers). The result is the first argument 'and'ed with the ones-complement of the other arguments.
Note that setting a bit can be simply done with bit.bor.
Testing a bit can be done with bit.test.
