Hi guys,

What is the best tutorial for bit manipulation in java? I've tried reading some books but they only give an overview and few examples. It would be much better if a tutorial could cover up all the topics in bit manipulation and present more helpful examples and applications.

Please help me with this as I am so confuse with bit manipulation in java.
If I could not understand this topic, the more I could not understand complex programs that use bit manipulation.

Thanks in advance!

Bit manipulation in Java is very similar to C/C++ and the way it works in Java is as friendly as in other languages. You have your AND, OR, XOR, NOT operators, & | ^ ! , and your shift operators, << >> >>>.

Perhaps what you are needing is a general explanation of bitwise operations and how numbers (integer, floating point etc.) are stored in binary. Perhaps do some Google searches, without limiting yourself to Java.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
