Re: [PUZZLE][SOLVED] NAVPATH/Cornfields Re: ^
Oh, I see, so it's like "original value increased by 2", and the ^ looks like an arrow pointing up. Neat!
Not necessarily -- sometimes '^2' decreases the value by two. For example, the character code for 'c' is 99; 99^2 evaluates to 97, which is 'a':
99 = 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0110 0011
2 = 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0010
99^2 = 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0110 0001 = 97
These were the puzzles that would take a day, these were puzzles that would take a week, and these puzzles they'd probably never figure out until we broke down and gave them the answers. ... The Cloudmakers solved all of these puzzles on the first day.

Ok, thanks for clarifying my misunderstanding

I know its a bit late, but my very limited knowledge of Java and boolean operators tells me that the character ^ is the boolean operator XOR (exclusive OR). Basically exactly what Shad0 said, but I thought that I'd give it a more recognizable name. Other boolean operators include AND (returns 1 if both bits in question are 1; 0 otherwise), OR (returns 1 if either bit in question is 1; 0 otherwise), and NOT (returns 1 if neither bit in question is 1; 0 otherwise). XOR returns 1 if exactly one bit is 1 and the other is 0, and returns 0 otherwise.
I realize that this has little to no context with this game, but hey, the more you know, right?
