>>= Operator (C# Reference)

The right-shift assignment operator.

An expression of the form

x >>= y

is evaluated as

x = x >> y

except that x is only evaluated once. The >> operator shifts x right by an amount specified by y.

The >>= operator cannot be overloaded directly, but user-defined types can overload the >> operator (see operator).

// cs_operator_right_shift_assignment.cs
using System;
class MainClass 
    static void Main() 
        int a = 1000;
        a >>= 4;
