Declaration

static func ^= (lhs: inout Int32, rhs: Int32)

Parameters

lhs

An integer value.

rhs

Another integer value.

Discussion

A bitwise XOR operation, also known as an exclusive OR operation, results in a value that has each bit set to 1 where one or the other but not both of its arguments had that bit set to 1. For example:

var x: UInt8 = 5          // 0b00000101
let y: UInt8 = 14         // 0b00001110
x ^= y                    // 0b00001011
