Python Language Bitwise XOR (Exclusive OR)


Example

The ^ operator will perform a binary XOR in which a binary 1 is copied if and only if it is the value of exactly one operand. Another way of stating this is that the result is 1 only if the operands are different. Examples include:

# 0 ^ 0 = 0
# 0 ^ 1 = 1
# 1 ^ 0 = 1
# 1 ^ 1 = 0

# 60 = 0b111100
# 30 = 0b011110
60 ^ 30
# Out: 34
# 34 = 0b100010

bin(60 ^ 30)
# Out: 0b100010
