I came across this when looking at the Panel class:
private static const LAYOUT_PROPERTY_FLAG:uint = 1 << 1;
Could someone tell me what the "<<" means here?
The constant (it evaluates to 2) is going to be used as a bit mask, so the developer emphasises that by using the shift notation. They could just as well have written 2 in place of the expression.
