### Bitwise Operators Truth Tables

Computed values for the bitwise logical operators.

**Binary operators**

Operators that take two operands.

**Unary operator**

Operator that take a single operand.

These logical operators return a value based on the value of their operand(s). For the binary operators, each bit in the left-hand side value is applied logically to the corresponding bit in the right-hand side value. The result of this operation is returned. For the unary operator, (

`Operator Not`), the logic is applied to its right-hand side operand only.

__Binary operators__##### Operator And (Conjunction)

Bits in the result are set if and only if both of the corresponding bits in the left and right-hand side operands are set.

Lhs | 0 | 0 | 1 | 1 |

Rhs | 0 | 1 | 0 | 1 |

Result | 0 | 0 | 0 | 1 |

##### Operator Eqv (Equivalence)

Bits in the result are set if and only if both of the corresponding bits in the left and right-hand side operands are both either set or unset.

Lhs | 0 | 0 | 1 | 1 |

Rhs | 0 | 1 | 0 | 1 |

Result | 1 | 0 | 0 | 1 |

##### Operator Imp (Implication)

Bits in the result are set if and only if the corresponding bit in the left-hand side operand implies the bit in the right-hand side operand.

Lhs | 0 | 0 | 1 | 1 |

Rhs | 0 | 1 | 0 | 1 |

Result | 1 | 1 | 0 | 1 |

##### Operator Or (Inclusive Disjunction)

Bits in the result are set if either of the corresponding bits in the left and right-hand side operands are set.

Lhs | 0 | 0 | 1 | 1 |

Rhs | 0 | 1 | 0 | 1 |

Result | 0 | 1 | 1 | 1 |

##### Operator Xor (Exclusive Disjunction)

Bits in the result are set if and only if one of the corresponding bits in the left and right-hand side operands is set.

Lhs | 0 | 0 | 1 | 1 |

Rhs | 0 | 1 | 0 | 1 |

Result | 0 | 1 | 1 | 0 |

__Unary operators__##### Operator Not (Complement)

Bits in the result are set if the corresponding bits in the right-hand side operand are unset, and unset if they are set.

Rhs | 0 | 1 |

Result | 1 | 0 |
