Tuple XOR operation in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When it is required to perform 'XOR' operations on the elements of one tuple, the 'zip' method and the generator expression can be used.

The zip method takes iterables, aggregates them into a tuple, and returns it as the result.

Generator is a simple way of creating iterators. It automatically implements a class with '__iter__()' and '__next__()' methods and keeps track of the internal states, as well as raises 'StopIteration' exception when no values are present that could be returned.

Below is a demonstration of the same −

Example

Live Demo

my_tuple_1 = ( 7, 8, 3, 4, 3, 2)
my_tuple_2 = (9, 6, 8, 2, 1, 0)

print ("The first tuple is : " )
print(my_tuple_1)
print ("The second tuple is : " )
print(my_tuple_2)

my_result = tuple(elem_1 ^ elem_2 for elem_1, elem_2 in zip(my_tuple_1, my_tuple_2))

print("The XORed tuple value is : " )
print(my_result)

Output

The first tuple is :
(7, 8, 3, 4, 3, 2)
The second tuple is :
(9, 6, 8, 2, 1, 0)
The XORed tuple value is :
(14, 14, 11, 6, 2, 2)

Explanation

  • Two tuples are defined, and displayed on the console.
  • The lists are iterated over, and they are zipped using the 'zip' method.
  • The first element is taken and 'XOR'ed with the second element from both the tuples using the '^' operator.
  • This is then converted to a tuple.
  • This operation is assigned to a variable.
  • This variable is the output that is displayed on the console.
