I was looking at following example from link

public class Shift2{
static int i=2;
public static void main(String argv[]){
System.out.println(32 % 32);
System.out.println( 3 >>> 32);
I clearly did not understood output.
I have not understood concepts behind >>>, >>,<<<,<<

Any ideas, resources,sample code,links, highly appreciated. thanks in advance.

Have a look at the tutorials: Bitwise and Bit Shift Operators.

Note: The <<< operator does not exist. Only: >>, >>> and <<.
