# Java program to swap two nibbles of a given byte

Given/input a byte value, we have to swap its two nibbles.
Submitted by Nidhi, on March 07, 2022

Problem Solution:

In this program, we will read a byte from the user and swap nibbles of the given byte.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to swap two nibbles of a given byte is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

```// Java program swap two nibbles
// of a given byte

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Main {
static byte swapTwoNibbles(byte val) {
byte num;
num = (byte)((val & 0x0F) << 4 | (val & 0xF0) >> 4);
return num;
}

public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner SC = new Scanner(System.in);

byte num = 0;
byte res = 0;

System.out.printf("Enter number: ");
num = SC.nextByte();

res = swapTwoNibbles(num);

System.out.printf("\nNumber after swapping nibbles : %d\n", res);
}
}
```

Output:

```Enter number: 64

Number after swapping nibbles : 4
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we imported the "java.util.Scanner" package to read input from the user. And, created a public class Main. It contains two static methods swapTwoNibbles() and main().

The swapTwoNibbles() method is used to swap two nibbles of a given byte using bitwise operators and return the result to the calling method.

The main() method is an entry point for the program. Here, we read a byte from the user using the Scanner class. Then we called the swapTwoNibbles() method to swap nibbles of the byte. After that, we printed the result.
