Python | Tuple XOR operation

• Last Updated : 29 Nov, 2019

Sometimes, while working with records, we can have a problem in which we may need to perform mathematical bitwise XOR operation across tuples. This problem can occur in day-day programming. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using zip() + generator expression
The combination of above functions can be used to perform this task. In this, we perform the task of XOR using generator expression and mapping index of each tuple is done by zip().

 # Python3 code to demonstrate working of # Tuple XOR operation# using zip() + generator expression   # initialize tuples test_tup1 = (10, 4, 6, 9) test_tup2 = (5, 2, 3, 3)   # printing original tuples print("The original tuple 1 : " + str(test_tup1)) print("The original tuple 2 : " + str(test_tup2))   # Tuple XOR operation# using zip() + generator expression res = tuple(ele1 ^ ele2 for ele1, ele2 in zip(test_tup1, test_tup2))   # printing result print("The XOR tuple : " + str(res))
Output :
The original tuple 1 : (10, 4, 6, 9)
The original tuple 2 : (5, 2, 3, 3)
The XOR tuple : (15, 6, 5, 10)

Method #2 : Using map() + xor
The combination of above functionalities can also perform this task. In this, we perform the task of extending logic of XOR using xor and mapping is done by map().

 # Python3 code to demonstrate working of # Tuple XOR operation # using map() + xorfrom operator import xor  # initialize tuples test_tup1 = (10, 4, 6, 9) test_tup2 = (5, 2, 3, 3)   # printing original tuples print("The original tuple 1 : " + str(test_tup1)) print("The original tuple 2 : " + str(test_tup2))   # Tuple XOR operation # using map() + xorres = tuple(map(xor, test_tup1, test_tup2))   # printing result print("The XOR tuple : " + str(res))
Output :
The original tuple 1 : (10, 4, 6, 9)
The original tuple 2 : (5, 2, 3, 3)
The XOR tuple : (15, 6, 5, 10)
