xor

Find logical exclusive-OR

Description

example

C = xor(A,B) performs a logical exclusive-OR of arrays A and B and returns an array containing elements set to either logical 1 (true) or logical 0 (false). An element of the output array is set to logical 1 (true) if A or B, but not both, contains a nonzero element at that same array location. Otherwise, the array element is set to 0.

For bit-wise logical XOR operations, see bitxor.

Examples

collapse all

Create a truth table for xor.

A = [true false]
A = 1x2 logical array

1   0

B = [true; false]
B = 2x1 logical array

1
0

C = xor(A,B)
C = 2x2 logical array

0   1
1   0

Input Arguments

collapse all

Operands, 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.
