API bit32

Bitwise right-shift. When called, shifts all bits in a number the specified amount to the right. For example, twelve is 1100 in binary. Shifting it two bits to the right makes it 3 (11). A right-shift is also equivalent to number / 2shift.

ExampleExampleShifting bits
Shifting ten (1010) 2 bits to the left. This should output 2, as 1010 becomes 10 (the last bit is dropped.)
Code
local ten = 10
print(bit32.rshift(ten, 2))
Output 2
