For Python or C++?  Sorry if I state something obvious, but I am not sure what 
you're asking about, so here is both:

In Python, it's __[i][l/r]shift__, in C++ it's simply a matter of defining 
operator<</>>/<<=/>>= like all other operators.  Given your C++ skills, you 
probably meant the former, for which the docs are at
