Bitwise Operator In Java
Bitwise Operators ?
A bitwise operator is an operator used to perform bitwise operations on bit patterns or binary numerals that involve the manipulation of individual bits.
Bitwise Operators are used in:
➦Communication stacks where the individual bits in the header attached to the data signify important information.
➦Embedded software for controlling different functions in the chip and indicating the status of hardware by manipulating the individual bits of hardware registers of embedded microcontrollers.
➦Low-level programming for applications such as device drivers, cryptographic software, video decoding software, memory allocators, compression software and graphics etc.
➦Maintaining large sets of integers efficiently in search and optimization problems.
➦Bitwise operations performed on bit flags, which can enable an instance of enumeration type to store any combination of values defined in an enumerator list.
