Hi Gautam,
Just use the search facility on top and type in Octal and press enter and you will find this subject discussed over and over again in this forum.

If we wanna do some bit shifting on an octal number manually,then we'll have to first convert it into a binary no. and then perform the shifting.
if a binary no. is like this:
00000011
then >>2 would mean:
11000000
coz 1 is shifted right,and other 1 is shifted right
IF i m wrong pls correct me
Thanks

Hi Gautam,
when you're doing bit shifting, the bits at the end (in the case of right shifting, >> ) are not rotated, as in your example, but simply fall off. Therefore:
0000 0011 >> 2 becomes 0000 0000 (which is zero).
Whether you have an octal, a decimal, a hexadecimal or even a binary number does not matter - internally they are all represented as binary numbers.
If in doubt, ask your compiler.
