xor(+Number1, +Number2, -Result)

Evaluates the bitwise exclusive disjunction Number1 xor Number2 and unifies the resulting value with Result.
Number1
Integer.
Number2
Integer.
Result
A variable or integer.

Description

This predicate is used by the ECLiPSe compiler to expand evaluable arithmetic expressions. So the call to xor(Number1, Number2, Result) is equivalent to
    Result is xor(Number1, Number2)
which should be preferred for portability.

In coroutining mode, if Number1 or Number2 are uninstantiated, the call to xor/3 is delayed until these variables are instantiated.

Modes and Determinism

Exceptions

(4) instantiation fault
Number1 or Number2 is not instantiated (non-coroutining mode only).
(5) type error
Number1 or Number2 is a number but not an integer.
(24) number expected
Number1 or Number2 is not of a numeric type.

Examples

Success:
      xor(11, 7, 12).
      xor(11, -7, Result).     (gives Result = -14)
Fail:
      xor(1, 2, 4).
      xor(6, 2, 4.0).
      xor(5, 2, r).
Error:
      xor(A, 2, 6).              (Error 4).
      xor(6, 2.0, 4.0).          (Error 5).
      xor(4 + 2, 2, 4).          (Error 24).
