What does this line mean?

What does this C++ line mean?

bool bBoolean = (0!=(nInteger&0 x08));

I don't understand the nInteger&0x08 bit.

bBoolean is true, if nInteger's 4th LSB is set.
' bool bBoolean = ( 0 != (nInteger & 0x08)); '

spacing surely helps sometimes to understand code beter.

I don't understand the nInteger&0x08 bit.

Google for 'bitwise operators' .

// I like to separate operands and operators
bool bBoolean = (0 != (nInteger & 0x08));
I don't understand the nInteger&0x08 bit.

'&' is the bitwise AND operator

// 00010111 = 23 in binary | 00011000 = 24 in binary
// & 00001000 = 8 in binary | & 00001000 = 8 in binary
// ---------- | ----------
// 00000000 = 23 & 8 ( == 0 ) | 00001000 = 24 & 8 ( != 0 )
that line is testing nInteger's fourth bit from the left;
if it's 0 bBoolean will be false, if it's 1 bBoolean will be true.

First of all, I'm an Asian and I need to input Japanese, Korean and so on. I've tried many PHP IDEs today, but almost non of them supported Unicode (UTF-8) file.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
