I want to know how you get the binary number? from a file or just you convert from other none binary number temporary? If so, why not doing the shift after you get it as a none binary number then convert it back.

However, 0011 is not a left-shifted form of 1001. Are you sure you want to left shift the number?

Are you sure you > want to left shift the number? I didn't even notice that. If the OP wants a circular shift he will have to build it up out of the bits and pieces that C does offer.

Thank you

It looks like you want to do a rotate operation. C doesn't provide an operator to do that directly, but you can program it. Incidentally, if you'll try to use better punctuation and capitalization, it will be helpful to those of us who are trying to help you. Capitalize the word "I" and the first word of each sentence. Leave a space or two after the "." at the end of each sentence; don't leave a space before it. For example: I have a binary number 1001. I have to left shift it to 1 position like 0011. If their any datatype or code is available to shift the binary numbers. The grammar and spelling are still a bit off, but we can overlook that. Also, what *exactly* do you mean when you say you have a binary number 1001? Do you have a 4-character string with the value "1001"? Do you have an integer object whose value would be 1001 if expressed in binary (9 decimal)? In C, integers are always stored in binary, but the language has no notation for binary constants (it only has decimal, octal, and hexadecimal). Finally, let me suggest that you choose a more specific subject, so we can tell what you're asking about. Everything here is (or should be) "about c". A subject like "binary left shift" or "binary left rotate" wold have been better.
