Characters that indicate operations to be done on single bits are known as bitwise operators. By positionally matching the individual bits of two-bit patterns of equal length, a bitwise operation is performed: If the first bit is 1 and the second bit is 1, a logical AND (&) of each bit pair results in a 1.
The sign bit is treated the same as any other bit by the Bitwise Not operation. If a pixel location's input is negative, the output will be negative; if the input is positive, the output will be positive. The output will be a multiband raster if the input is a multiband raster.

The bitwise operator in Ruby is used to perform operations on the binary representation of numbers. The bitwise operations are performed by a series of bitwise operators, and each operator performs a different operation on the binary representation of numbers. Bitwise operators are an efficient way of manipulating data that is stored in binary form.
In Ruby, the bitwise operators are denoted by the ampersand (&) and the asterisk (*) symbols. The & operator performs a logical AND operation on its operands and returns a result with all bits set that are set in both of its operands. The * operator performs a logical OR operation on its operands and returns a result with all bits set that are set in either of its operands or both.
