Function rightArithShift

Bitwise right arithmetic 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.


rightArithShift(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 sign-filled shifted right y times


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

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