.Inequality Operator (Int64, BigInteger)
Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit signed integer and a
value are not equal. BigInteger
public static bool operator !=(
System .Boolean if true left and right are not equal; otherwise, . false
method defines the operation of the inequality operator for Inequality values. It enables code such as the following: BigInteger
BigInteger bigNumber = BigInteger.Pow(2, 63);
long number = Int64.MaxValue;
if (number != bigNumber)
// Do something...
Languages that do not support custom operators can test for inequality by using one of the following techniques:
left is a , Byte , Int16 , Int32 , SByte , or UInt16 value, it is implicitly converted to an UInt32 value when the operation is performed. Int64 .NET Framework
