public BigInteger xor(BigInteger val)

Parameters

  • val - value to be XOR'ed with this BigInteger

Return Value

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
