# ^(_:_:)

Returns the result of performing a bitwise XOR operation on the two given values.

Available because

`Self`

conforms to`BinaryInteger`

.

`static func ^ (lhs: Self, rhs: Self) -> Self`

## Parameters

- lhs
An integer value.

- rhs
Another integer value.

## Overview

A bitwise XOR operation, also known as an exclusive OR operation, results in a value that has each bit set to `1`

where *one or the other but not both* of its arguments had that bit set to `1`

. For example:

```
let x: UInt8 = 5 // 0b00000101
let y: UInt8 = 14 // 0b00001110
let z = x ^ y // 0b00001011
// z == 11
```
