numpy.logical_xor() in Python

numpy.logical_xor(arr1, arr2, out=None, where = True, casting = ‘same_kind’, order = ‘K’, dtype = None, ufunc ‘logical_xor’) : This is a logical function and it helps user to find out the truth value of arr1 XOR arr2 element-wise. Both the arrays must be of same shape.

Parameters :

arr1 : [array_like]Input array.
arr2 : [array_like]Input array.



out : [ndarray, optional]Output array with same dimensions as Input array, placed with result.

**kwargs : allows you to pass keyword variable length of argument to a function. It is used when we want to handle named argument in a function.

where : [array_like, optional]True value means to calculate the universal functions(ufunc) at that position, False value means to leave the value in the output alone.

Return :

An array with Boolean results of arr1 XOR arr2 element-wise(of the same shape).

Output :

arr1 :  [0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7]

arr1>3 : 
 [False False False False  True  True  True  True]

arr1<6 : 
 [ True  True  True  True  True  True False False]

XOR Value  : 
 [ True  True  True  True False False  True  True]
