Example

The following example shows the usage of math.BigInteger.xor() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.math.*;

public class BigIntegerDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create 3 BigInteger objects
      BigInteger bi1, bi2, bi3;

      bi1 = new BigInteger("8");
      bi2 = new BigInteger("-6");

      // perform xor on bi1, bi2 and assign result to bi3
      bi3 = bi1.xor(bi2);

      String str = "XOR operation " +bi1+ " and " +bi2+ " gives " +bi3;

      // print bi3 value
      System.out.println( str );
   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −

XOR operation 8 and -6 gives -14
