V8 %GetOptimizationStatus

%GetOptimizationStatus return a set of bitwise flags instead of a single value, to access the value, you need to take the binary representation of the returned value. Now, for example, if 65 is returned, the binary representation is the following:

(65).toString(2).padStart(12, '0');
// 000001000001

Each binary digit acts as a boolean with the following meaning:

0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1
┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬ ┬
│ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ └─╸ is function
│ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ └───╸ is never optimized
│ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ └─────╸ is always optimized
│ │ │ │ │ │ │ │ └───────╸ is maybe deoptimized
│ │ │ │ │ │ │ └─────────╸ is optimized
│ │ │ │ │ │ └───────────╸ is optimized by TurboFan
│ │ │ │ │ └─────────────╸ is interpreted

└───────────────────────╸ topmost frame is turbo fanned
