bitwise.ulshift() function

bitwise.ulshift() is experimental and subject to change at any time. By using this function, you accept the risks of experimental functions.

bitwise.ulshift() shifts the bits in a left by b bits. Both a and b are unsigned integers.


ulshift is deprecated in favor of bitwise.

Function type signature
(a: uint, b: uint) => uint
For more information, see Function type signatures.



(Required) Left hand operand.


(Required) Number of bits to shift.


Shift bits left in an unsigned integer

import "experimental/bitwise"

bitwise.ulshift(a: uint(v: 1234), b: uint(v: 2))// Returns 4936 (uint)

Shift bits left in unsigned integers in a stream of tables

import "experimental/bitwise"
import "sampledata"

    |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with _value: bitwise.ulshift(a: r._value, b: uint(v: 3))}))
