For the logical
exclusive OR, XOR(A,B),
the result is logical 1
(TRUE) where either A
or B, but
not both,
is nonzero. The result is logical 0 (FALSE)
where A
and B are
both zero or nonzero.
A and
B
must
have the same dimensions (or one can be a scalar).
This is the common symbol for the 'Exclusive OR'
Example:
If matrix A
is:
A =
0
0
1 1
1

0 0
0

0 0

and matrix B
is:
B =

0 0

Then, the logical
EXCLUSIVE OR
between A
and B is:
>> xor(A,B)
ans =

If vector x
is:
x =

and vector y
is:
y =

Then, the logical
exclusive OR
between x
and y is:
ans =
