Bitwise NOT is a bit-level operation on a single binary value that sets the bits that are off and turns off the bits that are on. For example, performing a bitwise NOT on 163 gives 92.
Performing a bitwise NOT on a number has the same effect as performing a bitwise XOR on a Mersenne number of the form (where is the bit size of the data type in use, e.g., 8 for bytes, 16 for words, 32 for double words, etc.) and . Obviously a bitwise NOT on 0 gives the largest Mersenne number that can fit in the data type in use.
