Groovy - Bitwise Operators


Advertisements

Groovy provides four bitwise operators. Following are the bitwise operators available in Groovy −

Sr.No Operator & Description
1

&

This is the bitwise “and” operator

2

|

This is the bitwise “or” operator

3

^

This is the bitwise “xor” or Exclusive or operator

4

~

This is the bitwise negation operator

Here is the truth table showcasing these operators.

p q p & q p | q p ^ q
0 0 0 0 0
0 1 0 1 1
1 1 1 1 0
1 0 0 1 1

The following code snippet shows how the various operators can be used.

class Example { 
   static void main(String[] args) { 
      int a = 00111100; 
      int b = 00001101; 
      int x;
		
      println(Integer.toBinaryString(a&b)); 
      println(Integer.toBinaryString(a|b)); 
      println(Integer.toBinaryString(a^b)); 
		
      a=~a; 
      println(Integer.toBinaryString(a)); 
   } 
}

When we run the above program, we will get the following result. It can be seen that the results are as expected from the description of the operators as shown above.
