Yes, ">>", "<<", (<<<), "~" also exist...

(Well...
2^9 is bitwise...
0010b^1001b = 1011b =
11)

(No, the XOR operator follows the "one or other but not both" bit rule, looks like binary addition but not always...
5^1 =
101^001 = 100 =
4)

Exponential. It's dealing with powers.
2**9 means 2 times itself 9 times.
So 2**9 = 2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2.
Similarly, 3**2 = 3*3, 4**5 = 4*4*4*4*4 etc.

Ohh, it's an XOR operator. My bad. Thanks for explaining. (What are the operators for AND and OR? & and |?

the operation ** exist in other form,there is also pow in python, and a pow imported from module math , this two pow function are similar , but pow in math module give all in float number,and pow in python give intger number if it can be

Alex yes...I already said that...
Sanket Patel you are welcome.

Valen.H. ~ do explain it a bit more? You used the addition operator for the ^ sign?

thanks.. guys...
