BigInteger.Inequality Operator (UInt64, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit unsigned integer and a BigInteger value are not equal.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

public static bool operator !=(
	ulong left,
	BigInteger right
)

Parameters

left
Type: System.UInt64
The first value to compare.
right
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger
The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if left and right are not equal; otherwise, false.

The Inequality method defines the operation of the inequality operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:


BigInteger bigNumber = BigInteger.Pow(2, 63) - BigInteger.One;
ulong uNumber = Int64.MaxValue & 0x7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF;
if (uNumber != bigNumber)
{
   // Do something...
}


Languages that do not support custom operators can test for inequality by using one of the following techniques:

.NET Framework

Supported in: 4

.NET Framework Client Profile

Supported in: 4

Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 or later, Windows XP SP3, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core supported with SP1 or later), Windows Server 2003 SP2

The .NET Framework does not support all versions of every platform. For a list of the supported versions, see .NET Framework System Requirements.
