REBOL Programming/shift

USAGE:Edit

SHIFT data bits /left /logical /part length 

DESCRIPTION:Edit

Perform a bit shift operation. Right shift (decreasing) by default.

SHIFT is a native value.

ARGUMENTSEdit

  • data -- (Type: integer binary)
  • bits -- Number of bits to shift (Type: integer)

REFINEMENTSEdit

  • /left -- Shift bits to the left (increasing)
  • /logical -- Use logical shift (unsigned, fill with zero)
  • /part -- Shift only part of a series.
    • length -- (Type: integer)
