From the day I started operators in C, I had a big doubt 'What is the purpose of bitwise operators?' (When I was at school, with no knowledge about computer science). Most books for C did never care to explain about bitwise operators. Later at college level when I started to understand digital principles, I found the magic of bitwise operators.
So I have done some experiments with the bitwise operators and I already published two of them in ABAP development which fits ABAP in some way(http://scn.sap.com/community/abap/blog/2012/03/26/four-different-characters, http://scn.sap.com/community/abap/blog/2012/04/09/bitwise-can-even-avoid-loops). I got good response for that. I have few more articles at my personal blog regarding bitwise which does not fit into ABAP development. For people who are interested with bitwise, I would like to share the links of my articles.
Hope you will enjoy, I would try to come up with more.
