Logical shift to the Right. Set the output result as the logical right shift in binary representation of the input "Value", the number of bits to shift specified by the input "Shift, bit".бит».

In other words, the result is equivalent to the result of copying each bit in binary representation of input "value" to its right position, to the number of times specified by the value of the input "Shift, bit". Thus, the most significant (left-most) bit in the binary representation of the results each time gets a "0".

For example:

Value | = | 22 | = | 0x0016 | = | 0b0000000000010110 |

Shift, bits | = | 2 | ||||

Result | = | 5 | = | 0x0005 | = | 0b0000000000000101 |

## Features[edit]

The result of logical right shift::

for one bit — equivalent to the results of its integer division by 2

for two bits — equivalent to the results of its integer division by 4

for three bits — equivalent to the results of its integer division by 8

etc.
