How to use Bitwise operator in C#

Bitwise operator:

A bitwise operator is an operator used to perform bitwise operations on bit patterns or binary numerals that involve the manipulation of individual bits. The c# supports some of the following bitwise operators that are given below.

Some of the bitwise operators which we are using in this program are  

                1.  ~   (Not operation)

                2. &    (And operation)

                3.  |     (OR operation)

                4.  ^   (Exclusive OR operation)

  using System;
  using System.Collections.Generic;
  using System.Linq;
  using System.Text;
  class Program
          static void Main()
                   int a = 5;
                   int b = 10;
                  Console.WriteLine(a & b);  
                  Console.WriteLine(a | b);  
                  Console.WriteLine(a ^ b);  

In the above code snippet we are performing bitwise operations .

  1. In the first step we are performing Not opreration we have taken the a value as 5 and b value as 10 and we are performing Not operation the formula for Not operation is (-a-1)=(-5-1)=-6. 

  2. Second we are performing AND operation, In this the formula for AND operation is we have to convert the numbers into the decimal values 5=(0101) & 10=(1010). The AND operation calculates as (0101) & (1010) as 0 because the AND operation prints 0 value if there is 0 in the operation.

  3. Next we are performing OR operation (0101) | (1010), In this operation it calculate the value as if 1 value is there in the operation it prints 1 value then  (1111)=where the binary code of (1111) is (8421) = 15, prints the value as 15,

  4. Next we are performing the Exclusive OR operation, 5(0101) ^ 10(1010) as we combine the two values (0101) ^ (1010), result is  (1111), the binary code of (1111) is 15, prints the value as (15).
