Go language provides inbuilt support for bits to implement bit counting and manipulation functions for the predeclared unsigned integer types with the help of bits package. This package provides RotateLeft8() function which is used to rotate a left by (k mod 8) bits and to rotate a right by k bits you need to call RotateLeft8(a, -k). To access the RotateLeft8() function you need to add a math/bits package in your program with the help of the import keyword.
func RotateLeft8(a uint8, k int) uint8
Parameters: This function takes two parameter i.e., a of uint8 type and k of int type.
Return Value: This function return the rotated(either left or right) value of uint8 type.
Original: 110 After Rotation(Left): 1100
Original: 101 After Rotation(Right): 10000010
