How do you get the logical xor of two variables in Python?
For example, I have two variables that I expect to be strings. I want to test that only one of them contains a True value (is not None or the empty string):
str1 = raw_input("Enter string one:")
str2 = raw_input("Enter string two:")
if logical_xor(str1, str2):
The ^ operator seems to be bitwise, and not defined on all objects:
>>> 1 ^ 1
>>> 2 ^ 1
>>> "abc" ^ ""
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for ^: 'str' and 'str'
