# BigInteger.ExclusiveOr(BigInteger, BigInteger) Operator

## Definition

Performs a bitwise exclusive `Or` (`XOr`) operation on two BigInteger values.

``````public:
static System::Numerics::BigInteger operator ^(System::Numerics::BigInteger left, System::Numerics::BigInteger right);``````
``public static System.Numerics.BigInteger operator ^ (System.Numerics.BigInteger left, System.Numerics.BigInteger right);``
``static member ( ^^^ ) : System.Numerics.BigInteger * System.Numerics.BigInteger -> System.Numerics.BigInteger``
``Public Shared Operator Xor (left As BigInteger, right As BigInteger) As BigInteger``

#### Parameters

left
BigInteger

The first value.

right
BigInteger

The second value.

#### Returns

BigInteger

The result of the bitwise `Or` operation.

## Remarks

The result of a bitwise exclusive `Or` operation is `true` if the values of the two bits are different; otherwise, it is `false`. The following table illustrates the exclusive `Or` operation.

Bit x in `left` Bit x in `right` Return value
0 0 0
0 1 1
1 0 1
1 1 0

The ExclusiveOr method enables code such as the following:

``````BigInteger number1 = BigInteger.Pow(2, 127);
BigInteger number2 = BigInteger.Multiply(163, 124);
BigInteger result = number1 ^ number2;
``````
``````Dim number1 As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(2, 127)
Dim number2 As BigInteger = BigInteger.Multiply(163, 124)
Dim result As BigInteger = number1 XOr number2
``````

The ExclusiveOr method performs the bitwise exclusive `Or` operation on two BigInteger values as if they were both in two's complement representation with virtual sign extension.
