 (   >>    extraction operator ) extracts data from an input stream while (  <<  insertion operator ) inserts data into an output stream. The direction of the arrows is suggestive of the direction of data movement: (   >>    extraction operator ) from stream to datatype and (  <<  insertion operator ) to stream from datatype.
