& and && operator confusion

100 100+

I have a code...
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     int t=0x40000006,y=0x000000ff,i=0x40000000,a=0xf0000000;
  2.     cout<<(t&y);
  3.     cout<<"\n";
  4.     if(m1=i&&(t&y))
  5.         cout<<"Here"<<i&&(t&y);
  6.     if(h=((t&a)==(m1=i&&(t&y))))
  7.         cout<<"here"<<h<<endl<<m1;
  8.     cin>>x;
  9. }

here cout<<"Here"<<i&&(t&y); gives 0x40000000 as output

My question is 0x40000000 && 0x00000006 gives 0x40000000...Why??

Can anyone please explain.....

& is a bitwise operator
&& is a logical operator

For a logical operator there are only two values - true and false. Usually, c will treat 0 as false and ANYTHING else as true, so 0x40000000 && 0x00000006 will return true (since both are non-zero) (I don't think it's guaranteed to give 0x40000000, but it may do).

The bitwise operator doews a logical 'and' on EVERY bit thus

because && return true or false - which can be implementation specific.

i&y makes 0x00000006 (as you expect)

0x40000000&& 0x00000006 (both are non zero) so the result is true (which is any non-zero value). In this particular case, the implementer has decided to return your first term
