Does anyone have some code that performs a bitwise XOR operation on two numbers?

Thanks in advance Smile
If you were able to put the bin in a string with DCS7 commands, you could do something like:

:" "→str3
:If B xor C

I fixed it! It furs out I was using the wrong variable in the code that called this program, here's the source in case anyone would like to see it:

While F<S or F<E
If A<=E and A>=S and (D xor L):R+(2^(A-1))->R

N = 1st number
Z = 2nd number
R = Output
S = Starting bit to calculate from
E = Ending bit to calculate to
I came up with the following technique, but I know Weregoose is about to ninja this post with the code he posted on IRC after you logged off last night. My version performs A xor B -> C. Shameless fact: I ripped off the complex number concept from Weregoose.


I am sure I can shrink the code that figures out how many bits to compute. Anyway, here's how that works:

1) Computes the number of binary digits that will need to be generated: ~min(int(~log(A)/log(2)),int(~log(B)/log(2. This uses a pair of change of base operations plus a quirk of the int() command to get the ceiling of the two numbers of digits, and effectively gets the max of the two.
2) Computes a complex number for each bit indicating the value of the bit in A and B: fPart((A+Bi)/(2^X)).
3) Make sure that it's either 1+0i or 0+1i: 1=abs(int(2...))
4) Give each resulting bit its proper place value: .5(2^X)
5) Generate a list of place-valued bits and sum them: sum(seq(
Wow, thanks! I'll post my other bitwise operation code (AND, Shift, OR), I'm sure you'll come up with a one liner for those Very Happy
Let's see how similar these end up being...


If you want to retool this into another bitwise operation, go to the "=" and substitute it with "<" for AND, or "≤" for OR.


Three fewer bytes and noticeably faster:

Wow, that is fantastic!
I have one question though, what is the ⁻ symbol?
the emulator won't accept it.

EDIT: Found it on catalog

It comes from the x⁻ key, right below MATH and above the x-squared key.
