actually... a C book would be your best help here... or just goto a book
store and look up bit-shift, or bit arithmatic, or something like
that... You REALLY need to understand this concept throughly to play with
the circle code....

but to answer the question, <num> >> <amt> moves all the bits in <num>
<amt> bits to the right, effectivly getting rid of them, 
another way to look at it is you are dividing <num> by 2 <amt> number of
times.  but to get a book... This is very basic C coding, and one of the
core topics
