Unsigned right shift ">>>" Operator


In this section, you will learn how to use unsigned right shift ">>>"operator in Java. The Java programming language has operators that perform bitwise operations. In the example below we have shown the usage of  unsigned right shift ">>>"operator.

Description of code:

The unsigned right shift ">>>"operator shifts a zero into the leftmost position however the leftmost position after ">>" depends on sign extension. In the program code given below, this operator has shifted the bits to the leftmost position that is why we have got 19 as an output. 

Here is the code of program: 

public class Unrtshift{
 public static void main(String args[]){
  System.out.println78  >>> 2)

Output of the program:

C:\unique>javac Unrtshift.java

C:\unique>java Unrtshift
