23. applications of bitwise operators coderanch.comHardware registers generally return values at certain bit locations. And of course, set value via bit locations. Graphics are done by turning on / off bits at particular bytes. Networking protocols uses particular bits in a packet. Disk drive protocols (ie. the SCSI CDB). Etc. IMHO, bit operators are probably not needed for high level application developers. The control of hardware, ... 
24. Bitwise operator "  " coderanch.comPlease note that in your example,  is not a bitwise operator but a logical OR operator. Whether  is one or the other depends on the argument type  if they are boolean it's logical, if they're numerical (not float or double) it's bitwise, any other case is a compile error.

28. bitwise operators issue coderanch.comWhen you operate on multiple integral values, they're all promoted to the same type  usually int  before the operations. So when you try to combine c and c2, you're actually combining (int) c and (int) c2. c2 is signextended with a prefix of all ones, not all zeros as you've shown. If you want to work with just an ... 
29. Right bit Shift Operator In Java coderanch.comIt seems I don't need to do this anyway...i misinterpreted the PHP code. The PHP code does the following: $bucket=((crc32($key)>>16)&0x7fff) % $this>bucketcount; ...and I thought that crc32 was returning a string...it turns out its returning a number. Now if I could only find a java CRC32 class that returned a number that matches the results of the PHP crc32 function... Would ... 
30. Diifference in Bitwise Operators coderanch.comIntegers are stored in two's complement format in Java (as in almost every other programming language). The leftmost bit of an int is the sign bit  if it's set, the number is negative, if it's cleared, the number is positive. The >> operator shifts all the bits of the operand to the right and fills in the new bits on ...

36. Bit Operators forums.oracle.com 
37. bitwise operators forums.oracle.comFirst, read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two%27s_complement Given that, you'll understand that the high bit is the sign bit. There are two ways to shift right: 1. Bitwise shiftright (shiftright zerofill). 2. Arithmetic shiftright (shiftright signextend). The first option fills the high bits with zero as you shift right. The second option performs signextension, which means the high bit is used to fill in ...
