C# Question

How come C# doesn't have a conditional

`XOR`

Example:

`true xor false = true`

true xor true = false

false xor false = false

Answer

In C#, conditional operators only execute their secondary operand *if necessary*.

Since an XOR **must** by definition test both values, a conditional version would be silly.

**Examples**:

Logical AND:

`&`

- tests both sides every time.Logical OR:

`|`

- test both sides every time.Conditional AND:

`&&`

- only tests the 2nd side if the 1st side is true.Conditional OR:

`||`

- only test the 2nd side if the 1st side is false.
