Process Involved

A Telepathy Application.
IM application and Account Manager called Empathy.


Performs a bitwise exclusive OR (XOR) operation on the destination
(first) and source (second) operands and stores the result in the
destination operand location. The source operand can be an immediate,
a register, or a memory location; the destination operand can be a
register or a memory location. (However, two memory operands cannot
be used in one instruction.) Each bit of the result is 1 if the
corresponding bits of the operands are different; each bit is 0 if the
corresponding bits are the same.
