What you exactly means by bitwise operator? What's your exact requirement also, because to convert the int into binary string you have several other approaches as well.

i was told to use only bitwise operation
such as &  >> >>> << ~
to convert int to binary.
there cannot be multiplication n division used in the algorithm.
any clue?

Are you asking how to get a String representation of the binary value of an int?
To do that you need to look at each bit position of an int and test if its a 0 or a 1.
Use the AND operator for that.
Remember: 1 AND 1 = 1 1 AND 0 = 0
To look at all 32 bit positions, use the shift operator to move to the next position.

It sounded to me like a student's assignment to learn how to use bitwise operators. As an assembler programmer, I think it's good to know what's under the covers.

Here comes the messy part there, from the API
Java Code:private static String toUnsignedString(int i, int shift) { char[] buf = new char[32]; int charPos = 32; int radix = 1 << shift; int mask = radix  1; do { buf[charPos] = digits[i & mask]; i >>>= shift; } while (i != 0); return new String(buf, charPos, (32  charPos)); }

i am thinking of doing this... not sure whether this is good?
for every binary place of a NUM
if (NUM(NUM>>1<<1)==1)
print "1"
else
print "0"
NUM= NUM>>1
LOOP
but i want to hear from you guys what plan u have?
