Function leftShift

Bitwise left logical shift of a value x by y number of bits, x << y. For matrices, the function is evaluated element wise. For units, the function is evaluated on the best prefix base.


leftShift(x, y)


Parameter Type Description
x number | BigNumber | Array | Matrix Value to be shifted
y number | BigNumber Amount of shifts


Type Description
number | BigNumber | Array | Matrix x shifted left y times


leftShift(1, 2);               // returns number 4

leftShift([1, 2, 3], 4);       // returns Array [16, 32, 64]
