`LSHIFT`

— Left shift bits*Description*:`LSHIFT`

returns a value corresponding to`I`with all of the bits shifted left by`SHIFT`places. If the absolute value of`SHIFT`is greater than`BIT_SIZE(I)`

, the value is undefined. Bits shifted out from the left end are lost; zeros are shifted in from the opposite end.This function has been superseded by the

`ISHFT`

intrinsic, which is standard in Fortran 95 and later, and the`SHIFTL`

intrinsic, which is standard in Fortran 2008 and later.*Standard*:GNU extension

*Class*:Elemental function

*Syntax*:`RESULT = LSHIFT(I, SHIFT)`

*Arguments*:`I`The type shall be `INTEGER`

.`SHIFT`The type shall be `INTEGER`

.*Return value*:The return value is of type

`INTEGER`

and of the same kind as`I`.*See also*:
