BigInteger.BitwiseAnd Operator

Performs a bitwise And operation on two BigInteger values.

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

public static BigInteger operator &(
	BigInteger left,
	BigInteger right
)

Parameters

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

Return Value

Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger
The result of the bitwise And operation.

The BitwiseAnd method defines the bitwise And operation for BigInteger values. The bitwise And operation sets a result bit only if the corresponding bits in left and right are also set, as shown in the following table.

The BitwiseAnd method enables code such as the following:


BigInteger number1 = BigInteger.Add(Int64.MaxValue, Int32.MaxValue);
BigInteger number2 = BigInteger.Pow(Byte.MaxValue, 10);
BigInteger result = number1 & number2;


The BitwiseAnd method performs the bitwise And operation on two BigInteger values as if they were both in two's complement representation with virtual sign extension.
