The and_eq operator is an assignment operator that performs bitwise and. It is equivalent to logical-or-expr = logical-or-expr & assignment-expr except that logical-or-expr is evaluated only once. The keyword and_eq is interchangeable with the &= token.


unsigned bitmask = 0xFFFF;

bitmask &= ~0x7E; // bitmask becomes 0xFF81.
