Hello there,
I'm attempting to construct XOR logic in Python, but my code is failing me. I want to accept two boolean inputs from the user and then utilise logical operators to determine the XOR result. However, my code does not appear to be producing the desired results like this example from scaler. Could you please assist me in determining what is wrong?

This is my code:
num1 = int(input("Enter the first integer: "))
num2 = int(input("Enter the second integer: "))

# Calculate XOR
result = num1 ^ num2

print("Bitwise XOR result:", result)
Whatever values I input, the output is consistent and does not appear to be the right XOR result. Is there something I'm missing regarding logical operators or their precedence? Your assistance would be much appreciated!

I can see that you are using the correct XOR operator (^) to calculate the XOR result between two integers. The code you provided seems fine, and the issue you are facing might not be related to the XOR calculation itself.

To further troubleshoot the problem, it would be helpful to know how exactly the output you are getting differs from the expected results. Additionally, providing specific input values that produce unexpected outputs would also be useful.

In the meantime, make sure that the input values you are using are indeed integers, as the ^ operator is only applicable to integer types. Furthermore, double-check that the expected outputs from your source are accurate to rule out any discrepancies caused by differing expectations.

Please provide further details so that I can assist you better!
