bitwise operator
Last modified: Monday, September 01, 1997 

An operator that manipulates individual bits. The operators that most people are familiar with, such as the addition operator (+), work with bytes or groups of bytes. Occasionally, however, programmers need to manipulate the bits within a byte. The C programming language supports the following bitwise operators:
  1. >> Shifts bits right
  2. << Shifts bits left
  3. & Does an AND compare on two groups of bits
  4. | Does an OR compare on two groups of bits
  5. ^ Does an XOR compare on two groups of bits
  6. ~ Complements a group of bits

Not all programming languages support bitwise operators.
