Hamming Distance Problem & Solution

The Hamming distance between two integers is the number of positions at which the corresponding bits are different. Given two integers x and y, return the Hamming distance between them.

See the Hamming distance problem on LeetCode.

C++ Solution

#pragma GCC optimize("Ofast")

static const int _=[](){ios::sync_with_stdio(false);cin.tie(nullptr);cout.tie(nullptr);return 0;}();

class Solution {
  int hammingDistance(int x, int y) {
    return __builtin_popcount(x ^ y);
