bit string

[′bit ‚striŋ]
(computer science)
A set of consecutive binary digits representing data in coded form, in which the significance of each bit is determined by its position in the sequence and its relation to the other bits.

bit string

(programming, data)
An ordered sequence of bits. This is very similar to a bit pattern except that the term "string" suggests an arbitrary length sequence as opposed to a pre-determined length "pattern".
