In this section, you will learn how to use bitwise AND " &" operator in Java. The Java programming language has operators that perform bitwise operations. In the example below we have shown the usage of bitwise AND " &" operator.
Description of code:
The bitwise AND " &" operator produces 1 if and only if both of the bits in its operands are 1. However, if both of the bits are 0 or both of the bits are different then this operator produces 0. To be more precise bitwise AND " &" operator returns 1 if any of the two bits is 1 and it reurns 0 if any of the bits is 0.
In the program code given below, the corresponding bits of both operands are 1 and 1, hence we get 1 as output because one of the bits is 1. And if we take both the bits to be 0 or even a one of the bits to be 0 then we will get 0 as an output.
Here is the code of program:
Output of the program:
& AND operator
1 & 1 = 1
