# Rust program to demonstrate the bitwise XOR (^) operator

Here, we are going to demonstrate the bitwise XOR (^) operator in Rust programming language.
Submitted by Nidhi, on September 23, 2021

Problem Solution:

Bitwise XOR (^): The bitwise XOR operator (^) returns a 1 in each bit position for which the corresponding bits of either but not both operands are 1s. Here, we will perform the bitwise XOR (^) operation between two variables and print the result.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to demonstrate the bitwise XOR (^) operator is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

```// Rust program to demonstrate the
// bitwise XOR (^) operator

fn main() {
let mut num1:i32 = 6;
let mut num2:i32 = 2;
let mut res:i32  = 0;

res = num1 ^ num2;

println!("{0} ^ {1} = {2}",num1,num2,res);
}
```

Output:

```6 ^ 2 = 4
```

Explanation:

Here, we created three integer variables num1, num2, res that are initialized with 6, 2, 0 respectively. Then we performed the bitwise OR operation and printed the result.

Evolution of expression:

```res = 6 ^ 2

110
010
====
100

That is 4.
