I took one of the many tests out there and got this question:

Which of the following lines of code, considered individually, compile(s) without error? Choose all correct options.
A) int i=1; int j = &simi;
B) int i=1; int j = !i;
C) boolean b = true; boolean c = &simb;
D) boolean b = true; boolean c = !b;

I had no idea the &sim operator existed, so I answered D. But apparently, this was the correct answer:

Correct selection is: A, D
The &simoperator performs bitwise inversion on integral types; it may not be applied to boolean data. The ! operator inverts boolean values; it may not be applied to integral types.

Can anyone explain what the &sim operator is? Where can I find more information on it? Are there more operators like this one?

Hi, Christoffer
You answered correct - A is wrong answer!
There is no sim operator in Java ! Try compile this code and you'll be sure in this.
Where you found this test? This is not correct test.

Ah, it must have been the ~ operator. The makers must have forgot the ; when typing ∼

This is a known error in one of the RHE mock exams. Look in the errata forum.
