Rust - Bitwise NOT operator



The Bitwise NOT operator (!) is an unary operator which takes a bit pattern and performs the logical NOT operation on each bit. It is used to invert all of the bits of the operand. It is interesting to note that for any integer x, !x is the same as -(x + 1).

Bit! Bit
01
10

The example below describes how bitwise NOT operator works:


  528 -> 00000000000000000000001000010000 (in binary)
        ----------------------------------
 -529 <- 11111111111111111111110111101111 (in binary) 


The code of using Bitwise NOT operator (!) is given below:

fn main() {
  let x = 528;

  //Bitwise NOT operation
  let z = !x;

  //Displaying the result
  println!("x = {}", x);
  println!("z = {}", z);
}

The output of the above code will be:

x = 528
z = -529
