# <ConsistencyModule:> xor(+ConX,+ConY,Bool)

Bool is the reified truth of one of the constraints ConX or ConY being true.
*ConX*
- Constraint
*ConY*
- Constraint
*Bool*
- Reified truth value of the constraint (array notation accepted)

## Description

Equivalent to BX #= (ConX), BY #= (ConY), Bool #= (BX + BY #= 1)

The two constraints are reified in such a way that Bool reflects the
truth of one (and only one) being true. ConX and ConY must be
constraints that have a corresponding reified form.

ConsistencyModule is the optional module specification to give the
consistency level for the propagation for this constraint:
gfd_bc for bounds consistency, and gfd_gac for domain (generalised arc)
consistency.
This constraint is implemented using Gecode's MiniModel's rel() for
both integer and boolean expressions, with sub-expressions/constraints
not supported by MiniModel factored out and posted as auxiliary
constraints.

A more restricted version of this constraint is defined in the
global constraint catalog as 'xor', in that the reified truth value
is the logical exclusive disjunction of 0/1 variables rather than
constraints.

### Modules

This predicate is sensitive to its module context (tool predicate, see @/2).
