Operators (such as And, Or, Not, and Xor) that do operations on the bits of an integeral type.

Modification by Michael Tanczos

Operations:
A AND B
C/C++ : A & B

Truth Table
-----------
      0  1
    /-----
  0 | 0  0
  1 | 0  1
  
Translation: Yields true if A and B are true

--------------------

A OR B
C/C++ : A | B

Truth Table
-----------
      0  1
    /-----
  0 | 0  1
  1 | 1  1

Translation: Yields true if either A or 
B is true


--------------------

NOT B
C/C++ : ~B
NOT is an operator which negates a bit value

--------------------

A XOR B
C/C++ : A ^ B

Truth Table
-----------
      0  1
    /-----
  0 | 0  1
  1 | 1  0

Translation: Yields true if A and B are different
