BigInteger.GreaterThanOrEqual Operator (BigInteger, Int64)

Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is greater than or equal to a 64-bit signed integer value.

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

public static bool operator >=(
	BigInteger left,
	long right
)

Parameters

left
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The first value to compare.

right
Type: System.Int64

The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if left is greater than right; otherwise, false.

The GreaterThanOrEqual method defines the operation of the greater than or equal to operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

BigInteger bigNumber = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 4);
long number = Int64.MaxValue;
if (bigNumber >= number) {
   // Do something;
}

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.CompareTo(Int64) method instead. Some languages can also call the GreaterThanOrEqual(BigInteger, Int64) method directly, as the following example shows.

Dim bigNumber As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 4)
Dim number As Long = Int64.MaxValue
If BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(bigNumber,number) Then 
   ' Do something 
End If

If right is a Byte, Int16, Int32, SByte, UInt16, or UInt32 value, it is implicitly converted to an Int64 value when the operation is performed.
