# bitxor

## Syntax

C = bitxor(A,B)
C = bitxor(A,B,assumedtype)
objout = bitxor(netobj1,netobj2)

## Description

example

C = bitxor(A,B) returns the bit-wise XOR of A and B.

example

C = bitxor(A,B,assumedtype) assumes that A and B are of assumedtype.

objout = bitxor(netobj1,netobj2) returns the bit-wise XOR of the .NET enumeration objects netobj1 and netobj2.

## Examples

Create a truth table for the logical XOR operation.

A = uint8([0 1; 0 1]);
B = uint8([0 0; 1 1]);
TTable = bitxor(A, B)
TTable = 2x2 uint8 matrix

0   1
1   0

bitxor returns 0 if both bit-wise inputs are equal.

Explore how bitxor handles negative values.

MATLAB® encodes negative integers using two's complement. Thus, the bit-wise XOR of -5 (11111010) and 6 (00000110) is -3 (11111100).

C = -5;
D = 6;
bitxor(C,D,'int8')
ans = -3

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Input values, specified as scalars, vectors, matrices, or multidimensional arrays. Inputs A and B must either be the same size or have sizes that are compatible (for example, A is an M-by-N matrix and B is a scalar or 1-by-N row vector). For more information, see Compatible Array Sizes for Basic Operations. A and B also must be the same data type unless one is a scalar double.

• If A and B are double arrays, and assumedtype is not specified, then MATLAB® treats A and B as unsigned 64-bit integers.

• If assumedtype is specified, then all elements in A and B must have integer values within the range of assumedtype.

Data Types: double | logical | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64

Assumed data type of A and B, specified as 'uint64', 'uint32', 'uint16', 'uint8', 'int64', 'int32', 'int16', or 'int8'.

• If A and B are double arrays, then assumedtype can specify any valid integer type, but defaults to 'uint64'.

• If A and B are integer type arrays, then assumedtype must specify that same integer type.

Input values, specified as .NET enumeration objects. You must be running a version of Windows® to use .NET enumeration objects as input arguments.

bitxor is an instance method for MATLAB enumeration objects created from a .NET enumeration.

## Output Arguments

Bit-wise XOR result, returned as an array. C is the same data type as A and B.

• If either A or B is a scalar double, and the other is an integer type, then C is the integer type.

Bit-wise XOR result, returned as a .NET enumeration objects.
