Check this out,

Shift and Bitwise operators are used to manipulate data at bit level.

Shift operators should be used only with operands of type int or long, though they can also be used with other integral types. Shift operators always return a result of type INT or LONG.

Positive integer0..0 110012
Negative integer1..1 1100-4

Negative integer1..1 1100-4
Signed right-shift1..1 1110-2
unsigned right-shift0..1 11102147483646
Left-shift1..1 1000-8

With the unsigned right-shift operator (>>> and the left shift operator, the new bits are always set to 0.

The result of ~x will always be the value ((-x) -1)

Hope it helps.

grrr

Hello "grr rrr"-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a JavaRanch Naming Policy for displayed (screen) names. Your displayed name must consist of a first name (or an initial), a space, and a family name (in that order) and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours "grr rrr", does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

Posters with nonconforming displayed names will be locked out of JavaRanch after a few posts using those names.

Thanks
-Barry
