bit-oriented protocol

   A communications protocol in which data is transmitted as a stream of bits rather than as a stream of bytes.
   A bit-oriented protocol uses specific sequences of bits as control codes, unlike a byte-oriented protocol, which uses reserved characters. HDLC (High-level Data Link Control) and IBM's SDLC (Synchronous Data Link Control) are both bit-oriented protocols.
   See also byte-oriented protocol.
