## What is the use of XOR operator in Java?

Bitwise XOR (exclusive or) “^” is an operator in Java that provides the answer ‘1’ if both of the bits in its operands are different, if both of the bits are same then the XOR operator gives the result ‘0’. XOR is a binary operator that is evaluated from left to right.

## How do you perform XOR?

A Better Solution can find XOR without using loop.

- Find bitwise OR of x and y (Result has set bits where either x has set or y has set bit). …
- To remove extra set bits find places where both x and y have set bits. …
- bitwise AND of “(x | y)” and “~x | ~y” produces the required result.

## How do you do exclusive or in Java?

The XOR logical operation, or exclusive or, takes two boolean operands and returns true if and only if the operands are different. Thus, it returns false if the two operands have the same value. So, the XOR operator can be used, for example, when we have to check for two conditions that can’t be true at the same time.

## What XOR means?

XOR gate (sometimes EOR, or EXOR and pronounced as Exclusive OR) is a digital logic gate that gives a true (1 or HIGH) output when the number of true inputs is odd. An XOR gate implements an exclusive or; that is, a true output results if one, and only one, of the inputs to the gate is true.

## How do you shift left in Java?

Bitwise Left Shift Operator (

Left shift operator shifts the bits of the number towards left a specified number of positions. The symbol for this operator is shift the bits of x towards left n specified positions.

## What is XOR example?

Exclusive disjunction is often used for bitwise operations. Examples: 1 XOR 1 = 0. … 0 XOR 0 = 0. 11102 XOR 10012 = 01112 (this is equivalent to addition without carry)

## Can XOR be reversed?

Not possible with XOR. And that’s why they use it: information does not get lost, it is completely preserved and can be reversed by an other XOR if one of the operands get known later.

## What is XOR SQL?

MySQL XOR operator checks two operands (or expressions) and returns TRUE if one or the other but not both is TRUE. Syntax: XOR. MySQL Logical XOR returns a NULL when one of the operands is NULL.

## How does & work in Java?

The & operator is a bitwise “And”. The result is the bits that are turned on in both numbers. 1001 & 1100 = 1000 , since only the first bit is turned on in both. The | operator is a bitwise “Or”.

## What is XOR of two numbers?

The expression ((x | y) – (x & y)) is equivalent to x ^ y (finding XOR of two numbers x and y). XOR works by setting the bits which are set in either of one of the given numbers (0 ^ 1 = 1, 1 ^ 0 = 1) and finally taking out the common bits present in both numbers (1 ^ 1 = 0).

## Is XOR distributive over or?

Also × is distributive over +. The symbols + and × are chosen deliberately because these properties mean that the two operations behave like addition and multiplication. We’ve already seen that XOR is an Abelian group over the set of Boolean vectors, so it can perform the role of the + operation in a ring.

## How do you get two XOR strings?

If you want to XOR two strings, it means you want to XOR each character of one string with the character of the other string. You should then XOR ord() value of each char or str1 with ord() value of each char of str2.
