I noticed some interest here[edit]

I noticed some interest here (edits other than my own). If you have more information than I do, please help! I don't have any documentation and am writing all of this purely from memory and some ancient code of mine.

Hi Alexsandar! I just stumbled across this, and was wondering if perhaps the logical operations (AND, OR, NOT) should actually be bitwise operations? It seems like it would make more sense. User:Glenn Willen (Talk) 17:10, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Well, the current title says "bitwise/logical" - they are both. Actually Wikipedia is a kind of not very consistent on this one. For example, I would have said "Bitwise shifts" but the main article is called Logical shifts - so I called that section the same way. As for AND/OR/NOT they are more "Logical" than "Logical shifts" and in this case, aren't any less bitwise (they operate on vectors of bits, not the value as a whole).

So take from this what you like. If you feel it would sound better to say "Bitwise" alone, go ahead - English is your language more than mine.
