Zero-Fill Right Shift
Format: x >>> y
Arguments: (int) x, y Any integers
Returns: (int) The value of x with all bits shifted right y places
Description: This operator converts x from a floating-point number to a 32-bit integer, shifts all bits y places to the right, and then returns the result as a floating-point number.
The difference between Right Shift and Zero-Fill Right Shift is in how the sign bit is treated. With Right Shift, the sign is preserved by keeping the most significant bit unchanged. With Zero-Fill Right Shift, the most significant bit is set to zero.
Examples: 16>>>3 = 2 (10000 >>> 3 = 00010)
12>>>2 = 3 (01100 >>> 2 = 00011)
-12>>>2 = 1073741821 (sign is not preserved)
