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.
