Keyword Shr

Shr is a binary operator that performs the (signed) shift to right function.

Syntax

value Shr shift amount

Description

Shr shifts the bits within the binary representation of an integer value to the right by the given integer amount.

The effect of shifting bits to the right is to exponentially halve the value of an integer for each shift amount.

Note that Shr is a signed operator, which means that results will never be less than zero.

Example

This example shows the effect of shifting a value right (up to 10 times):

Function Main () 
 
    Local a:Int = 1024 
     
    For Local loop:Int = 1 To 10 
        Print a + " shifted right by " + loop + " = " + (a Shr loop
    Next 
 
End
