Bitwise OR returns true if either one of the bits are 1, including the case that both of them are 1 Bitwise XOR will return true only if 1 of the bits are 1, returning false for any other condition

The difference between Bitwise OR and Bitwise XOR is : Bitwise OR returns True(1) if any one bit out of two is "1" or else it will return False(0). It is denoted by symbol "|". TRUTH TABLE OF BITWISE "OR" : ---------------------------------------------------- x y x | y ------------------------- 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 Bitwise XOR returns True(1) if the two bits are different or else it will return False(0). It is denoted by symbol "^". TRUTH TABLE FOR BITWISE "XOR" : -------------------------------------------------------- x y x^y ------------------------- 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 1 1 1 0 I hope u have got it......

Similar to the difference between logical XOR and logical OR except that the concept is applied to bits.
