Bitshift right operator.

## Description

The bitshift operators shift the bits to the left or to the right the number of bits given.

The priority of these operators is less binding that the
arithmetic ones, but more binding that the comparisons.

Parentheses may be used as above to force particular groupings.

## Syntax

a **>>** b (bitshift left)

where the arguments *a* and *b* may be further
expressions.

## Examples

See the entry for the *<<* operator for an example.
