I'm pretty forgetful, hence the reason for this blog, so I'm keeping this as a little reminder on how to perform these tasks in C.
Result: The result is 1 only if both compared bits are 1.
result = variableA & variableB
Result: The result is 1 if either compared bits are 1.
result = variableA | variableB
XOR (exclusive OR)
Result: The result is 1 only if one or the other bits are 1. If both bits are 1, the result is 0.
result = variableA ^ variableB
This flips all the bits in a variable, so all the 1's become 0's and all the 0's become 1's. (It isn't actually an operator, but you'll have to come around to using it one day)
Result: An example would be 1001 becomes 0110.
flippedB = ~variableB
