Gets the absolute value of a BigInteger object.
Assembly: System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)
The absolute value of a number is that number without its sign, as shown in the following table.
value >= 0
value < 0
value * -1
The method is equivalent to the Math.Abs method for the primitive numeric types.
The following example uses the method to convert a BigInteger value from two's complement representation to sign-and-magnitude representation before serializing it to a file. Data in the file is then deserialized and assigned to a new BigInteger object.
