I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

have a look at this article to find out what the two's complement is and what it is used for's_complement

int number = 12345; // whatever you like
int twoscompl = ~number + 1; // this is the way as it is defined (negate all bits and add 1)
int twoscompl = -number;  // this is the trivial way to do the same thing in any programming language
