Does anyone know the reason why the bitwise and bit shifting operators (&, |, ^, <<, >>, >>>) are not included in Kotlin? I tried looking but couldn’t find anything specific.
I’m so use to them existing, I was surprised to find they aren’t available and that extensions (lsh, rhs, and, or) are used instead.
Are there any plans to include these, or other operators (e.g. power **, **=), post-1.0?
