@Wiimm I don't think this is easy to understand for many poeple, actually you have to kinda know C/C++ in order to fully understand it.
That the size of an integer is dependent on the machine is C/C++ only, in C# (and any other managed object orientated programming language??) the size of integers are fixed: short = 2 bytes, int = 4 bytes, long = 8 bytes ,which are generally used in this meaning on the wiki.
Because the C/C++ meanings are not really used by anyone except you, I suggest just using the C# terms ,which are used by me, Chadderz and kHacker35000vr (well, he uses VB.net, but that uses the same meanings). The C# terms are also much easier to understand, because the sizes are fixed. I also suggest to remove the crap about logic operations because that has nothing to do with hexadecimal numbers (as you're working with bits). I'd like to know your opinion.

First, I have inserted the C# stuff.
About bitwise operations: I know, the basics are independent of hex numbers. On the other hand, if working with bit operations, hex numbers are used everywhere (or octal numbers). The reason for this theme was the last ITPT Settings discussion. I ask myself: Should I write a new article for this or only a sub section? I wasn't sure, but I decided for a sub section. On the other hand, a page named bitwise operation will be easier to link.

A note: It's not my article! I see all articles here as collective work. I have only written this, because the previsions to "Hex Editing" were wrong in many details. And I'm now, I see many things as stupid programming guru.

I think, create bitwise operation with links to and from Hexadecimal.
