Bitwise operations in Python allow you to do the most precise manipulations on those individual data bits. Python operators support bitwise logical operations on integers.
In this article, we’ll discuss the
Bitwise NOT Operator in Python.
Bitwise NOT Operator in Python
Bitwise NOT(or complement), a unary operation that conducts logical negation on each bit to create the one complement of the provided binary value, is a bitwise operation. Bits that are 0 change to 1, whereas bits that are 1 change to 0.
Bitwise NOT is equivalent to the value’s two’s complement less one. A particular bit called the sign bit is used to store whether an integer is positive or negative (the integer’s sign), and any positive number becomes a negative number and vice versa since this bit is also affected by the
Bitwise NOT operator’s symbol is
In the following example, we’ve declared a variable a with a value of
1289. Then, assign it to variable
x, in which you add the value of and complement value of
a, and then print the value of
x, which is
#Python 3.x a = 1289 x=a + ~a print(x)
#Python 3.x -1
In this next code example, we declared a variable
x and assigned
20. Then, we performed the
Bitwise NOT operation, which gives
-21, as shown in the output.
#Python 3.x x = 20 print("~20 =", ~x)
#Python 3.x ~20 = -21
In this last example, we’ll initialize the data using the special
init() method for classes. The
invert() function computes bitwise inversion of data by reassigning the self attribute to the compliment.
Assign the data
3 to variable
x. The complement of
x is stored in the
By printing the
res. data will give you
-4 as the output.
#Python 3.x class Data: def __init__(self, data): self.data = data def __invert__(self): return Data(~self.data) x = Data(3) res = ~x print(res.data)
#Python 3.x -4
