Java Bitwise NOT "~" Operator


In this section, you will learn how to use bitwise NOT "~" operator in Java. The Java programming language has operators that perform bitwise operations. In the example below we have shown the usage of  bitwise NOT "~" operator.

Description of code:

The bitwise NOT "~" operator  inverts each bit in the operand i.e. this operator changes all the ones to zeros and all the zeros to ones. Remember that this operator takes only one operand or parameter. Hence in the program code given below only one parameter has been taken.

Here is the code of program: 

class BitwiseNOT
  public static void main(String args[]){
  System.out.println(" ~ NOT opeartor");
  System.out.println("~ 1 = " + ~1)
  System.out.println("~ 5 = " + ~5);

Output of the program:


C:\unique>java BitwiseNOT
~ NOT opeartor
~ 1 = -2
~ 5 = -6
