It's a good start at a useful topic for those who haven't gone through a basic Boolean algebra course (such as electrical logic or an optional part of high school algebra).

I would even recommend this move into Tutorials, if you could tighten up the topic a little more and pay a little more attention to grammar, readability and markup. I'd probably recommend you refer to ~ as the bitwise 'inverse' operator instead of the bitwise 'not' operator, to reduce a little confusion.

The parts about using bitwise operators on strings or characters may be more clear if pulled out into a separate section: bitwise strings is just like a loop, performing bitwise operations on each character position in the pair of strings.

Also, instead of briefly explaining logical operators (! not && and || or), and the use of DeMorgan's Theorem, just leave a caveat that these aren't bitwise operators-- plenty of material for a follow-up tutorial.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
