    If u could have a look at FAQ a clear explanation is given. Just a brief note

    Code:
    <<  -> left shift operator is similar to multiple by 2
    >> -> right shift operator is similar to divide by 2

    << and >> aren't the only bitwise operators, though. There's !, &, |, and ^, and maybe some I can't remember at the moment.

    '!' is logical; you meant '~', of course.
    System: Debian Sid and FreeBSD 7.0. Both with GCC 4.3.
