SIMD.%type%.xor()

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The static `SIMD.%type%.xor()` method returns a new instance with the logical XOR of the lane values (`a ^ b`).

Syntax

```SIMD.Int8x16.xor(a, b)
SIMD.Int16x8.xor(a, b)
SIMD.Int32x4.xor(a, b)

SIMD.Uint8x16.xor(a, b)
SIMD.Uint16x8.xor(a, b)
SIMD.Uint32x4.xor(a, b)

SIMD.Bool8x16.xor(a, b)
SIMD.Bool16x8.xor(a, b)
SIMD.Bool32x4.xor(a, b)
SIMD.Bool64x2.xor(a, b)
```

Parameters

a
An instance of a SIMD type.
`b`
Another instance of a SIMD type.

Return value

A new corresponding SIMD data type with the logical XOR of the lane values (`a ^ b`).

Description

The bitwise XOR operation yields 1, if `a` and `b` are different. The truth table for the XOR operation is:

`a` `b` `a ^ b`
0 0 0
0 1 1
1 0 1
1 1 0

For example, a bitwise XOR of `5 & 1` results in `0100` which is 4 in decimal.

```5  0101
1  0001
----
4  0100
```

Examples

Bitwise XOR of two `Int32x4`

```var a = SIMD.Int32x4(1, 2, 4, 8);
var b = SIMD.Int32x4(5, 5, 5, 5);
SIMD.Int32x4.xor(a, b);
// Int32x4[4, 7, 1, 13]
```
