Bit operations



Performs various operations on the binary representations of the
Fixnum .
~ fix

Invert bits 
fix

 
aNumeric

Bitwise OR

fix

& 
aNumeric

Bitwise AND

fix

^ 
aNumeric

Bitwise EXCLUSIVE OR

fix

<< 
aNumeric

Leftshift aNumeric bits 
fix

>> 
aNumeric

Rightshift aNumeric
bits (with sign extension) 

<=>

fix <=> aNumeric
> 1, 0, +1


ComparisonReturns 1, 0, or +1 depending on whether fix is less
than, equal to, or greater than aNumeric. This is the
basis for the tests in Comparable .

[ ]

fix[ n ] > 0, 1


Bit ReferenceReturns the nth bit in the binary
representation of fix, where fix[0] is the least significant
bit.
a = 0b11001100101010
30.downto(0) do n print a[n] end

produces:
0000000000000000011001100101010


id2name

fix.id2name > aString or nil


Returns the name of the object whose symbol
id is the value of fix. If there is no symbol in the symbol
table with this value, returns nil .
id2name has nothing to do with the Object.id
method. See also
String#intern
on page 371 and class Symbol on page 383.
symbol = :@inst_var

» 
:@inst_var

id = symbol.to_i

id.id2name

» 
"@inst_var"


size

fix.size > aFixnum


Returns the number of bytes in the machine representation
of a Fixnum .

to_f

fix.to_f > aFloat


Converts fix to a Float .

to_i

fix.to_i > fix


Returns fix.

to_s

fix.to_s > aString


Returns a string containing the decimal representation of self.
