Description

The xor operator is an alternative representation of the ^ operator (bitwise xor).

It returns a Boolean true result if just one of its operands is true. This is in opposition to an inclusive or which denotes that both statements must be integers for a true statement to be returned.

If 2 or 8.25 are stated to be integers, a true statement will be returned even though 8.25 is a decimal.

If Jack and Jill are both stated to be male, a true statement would be returned even though Jill is female.

In order to use the xor operator, you need to check the Enable new operator names option (the -VM compiler switch, available on the Compatibility page of the Project > Options dialog box).
