Bit-Shifting Operators

The shift operators allow programmers to adjust an integer by shifting all of its bits to the left or the right. The following diagram shows the affect of shifting a value to the left by one digit.

Left-Shift

uint value = 15;              // 00001111
 
uint doubled = value << 1;    // Result = 00011110 = 30
uint shiftFour = value << 4;  // Result = 11110000 = 240

Right-Shift

uint value = 240;             // 11110000
   
uint halved = value >> 1;     // Result = 01111000 = 120
uint shiftFour = value >> 4;  // Result = 00001111 = 15
