C Language have the different types of bitwise operators, which can be apply on the integer types, long, int, short, char, and byte.

Bitwise operator works on to perform bit-by-bit operation. Assume if x = 60, and y = 13, now in binary format as follows:

`x = 0011 1100`

Different Result is :

y= 0000 1101

`x&y = 0000 1100`

x|y = 0011 1101

x^y = 0011 0001

~x = 1100 0011

The following table of bitwise operators :

Assume integer variable X holds 60 and variable Y holds 13, then:

Operator | Descriptions | Example |
---|---|---|

& | Binary AND Operator copies a bit to the result if it exists in operand. | (X & Y) will give 12 which is 0000 1100 |

| | Binary OR Operator copies a bit if it exists in either operand. | (X | Y) will give 61 which is 0011 1101 |

^ | Binary XOR Operator copies the bit if it is set in one operand but not both. | (X ^ R) will give 49 which is 0011 0001 |

~ | Binary Ones Complement Operator is unary and has the effect of 'flipping' bits. | (~X ) will give -61 which is 1100 0011 in 2's complement form due to a signed binary number. |

<< | Binary Left Shift Operator. The left operands value is moved left by the number of bits specified by the right operand. | X << 2 will give 240 which is 1111 0000 |

>> | Binary Right Shift Operator. The left operands value is moved right by the number of bits specified by the right operand. | X >> 2 will give 15 which is 0000 1111 |

Line 1 - Value of z : 12

Line 2 - Value of z : 61

Line 3 - Value of z : 49

Line 4 - Value of z : -61

Line 5 - Value of z : 240

Line 6 - Value of z : 15
