File outfile = new File( "Test.bin" );
FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream( outfile );

byte data = 0x30; // "0" in hex

out.write( data^3 );

The output in the file when opened with WordPad is "3"

^3 is power to 3. Can anyone explain how it became 3?

And what is this doing?
out.write( data | (1 << 1) );
