Microsoft JScript
^= Operator |
Language Reference
Version 1 |

Used to perform a bitwise exclusive OR on an expression.

result^=expressionThe

^=operator syntax has these parts:

PartDescriptionresultAny variable. expressionAny expression.

Using the

^=operator is exactly the same as specifying:

result = result ^ expression

The

^=operator looks at the binary representation of the values of two expressions and does a bitwise exclusive OR operation on them. The result of this operation behaves as follows:

0101 (result) 1100 (expression) ---- 1001 (result)

When one, and only one, of the expressions has a 1 in a digit, the result has a 1 in that digit. Otherwise, the result has a 0 in that digit. For information on when a run-time error is generated by the

^=operator, see the Operator Behavior table.
