Bitwise operators
A Bitwise operator operates on a bit string, a bit array or binary numeral and are basic actions that can directly be done by the processor itself. The processor uses the basic [boolean operators](#84booleanoperatorsbasics) on bit level and can shift the bit string.

Description 


AND 
Sets each bit to 1 if both bits are 1 

OR 
Sets each bit to 1 if one of two bits is 1 

XOR 
Sets each bit to 1 if only one of two bits is 1 

NOT 
Inverts all the bits 

Zero fill left shift 
Shift left by pushing zeros in from the right and let the leftmost bits fall off 

Signed right shift 
Shift right by pushing copies of the leftmost bit in from the left, and let the rightmost bits fall off 
The first example is applying AND on two signed integers. The processor converts the integers to bit strings and then applies the ANDtable to every position between the two string. For 3 & 4 the result is 0 as there are no overlapping bits between the two integers. For 3 & 7 the result is 3 as the bits for number 3 are also in number 7 and will result matching number 3.

4 # 3 = 0000 0011
5 # 4 = 0000 0100 AND
6 # 0 = 0000 0000
7 print(3 & 4)
8 # 3 = 0000 0011
9 # 7 = 0000 0111 AND
10 # 3 = 0000 0011
11 print(3 & 7)

The next example is applying OR on two signed integers. The processor converts the integers to bit strings and then applies the ORtable to every position between the two string. For 3  4
the result is 7
as all bits that are 1
will end up in the result. For 3  7
the result is also 7
as the bits for number 3 are also in number 7 and will result matching number 7.

4 # 3 = 0000 0011

7 print(3  4)
8 # 3 = 0000 0011
9 # 7 = 0000 0111 OR
10 # 7 = 0000 0111
