Choose the base of the numbers you want to calculate their bitwise operation, then enter two numbers (only one number in case of the NOT operator), or in case of the Shift operators the number you want to shift and the number of bits to shift, and click the ‘Calculate’ button.

Bitwise operators like: OR, AND, XOR, NOT, Shift Left and Shift Right operate on the bit level of a number. They may perform faster then operations on the byte level. For example, bitwise operations for multiplication and division (Shift Left is used for multiplication and Shift Right for division) are much faster then the equivalent multiplication and division operations on bytes.
