Bitwise XOR Operator is -

1. The XOR operator (^) combines bits such that if either of the bits in the operands is a 1, then the resultant bit is a 1
2. Binary Operator as it Operates on 2 Operands.
3. Denoted by : ^

ABA ^ B
000
011
101
110

Live Example 1 : XORing 42 and 15

```class BitwiseXOR {
public static void main(String args[]){

int num1 = 42;
int num2 = 15;

System.out.println("XOR Result =" +(num1 ^ num2));

}
}```
[468x60]

Output :

`XOR Result = 37`

Explanation of Code :

```Num1 : 00101010   42
Num2 : 00001111   15
======================
XOR  : 00100101   37```
• 42 is represented in Binary format as -> 00101010
• 15 is represented in Binary format as -> 00001111
• According to above rule (table) we get 00100101 as final structure.
• println method will print decimal equivalent of 00100101 and display it on screen.

Live Example 2 : ORing Hex and Integer

```class BitwiseXOR {
public static void main(String args[]){

int num1 = 42;
int num2 = 0xF;

System.out.println("XOR Result =" +(num1 ^ num2));

}
}```
• Code will also gives 37 as a result.
• 0xF is first converted into “decimal“.(Decimal Equivalent : 15)
• Again Same Operation will takes place as that of “Live Example 1“.
```Step 1: Converting Hex to Decimal

Num2  : F  (Hex)
: 15 (Decimal Equivalent)```
```Step 2: Converting Decimal to Binary

Num1  : 00101010   42
Num2  : 00001111   15
======================
XOR   : 00100101   37```
