BitXor

BitXor[n1,n2,]

gives the bitwise XOR of the integers ni.

Details

  • Integer mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • BitXor[n1,n2,] yields the integer whose binary bit representation has ones at positions where an odd number of the binary bit representations of the ni have ones.
  • For negative integers BitXor assumes a two's complement representation.
  • BitXor automatically threads over lists.
