BigInteger.BitwiseAnd Operator

Performs a bitwise And operation on two BigInteger values.

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

'Declaration
Public Shared Operator And ( _
	left As BigInteger, _
	right As BigInteger _
) As BigInteger

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:

Dim number1 As BigInteger = BigInteger.Add(Int64.MaxValue, Int32.MaxValue)
Dim number2 As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(Byte.MaxValue, 10)
Dim result As BigInteger = number1 And 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.
