BigInteger.GreaterThanOrEqual Operator (Int64, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit signed integer is greater than or equal to a BigInteger value.

Namespace:  System.Numerics
Assembly:  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

public static bool operator >=(
	long left,
	BigInteger right
)

Parameters

left
Type: System.Int64
The first value to compare.
right
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger
The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if left is greater than right; otherwise, false.

The GreaterThanOrEqual method defines the operation of the greater than or equal to operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:


BigInteger bigNumber = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 4);
long number = Int64.MaxValue;
if (number >= bigNumber)
{
   // Do something;
}


Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.CompareTo(Int64) method instead. Some languages can also call the GreaterThanOrEqual(Int64, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.


Dim bigNumber As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 4)
Dim number As Long = Int64.MaxValue
If BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(number, bigNumber) Then
   ' Do something
End If


If left is a Byte, Int16, Int32, SByte, UInt16, or UInt32 value, it is implicitly converted to an Int64 value when the operation is performed.
