BigInteger.Inequality Operator (BigInteger, UInt64)

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

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System.Numerics
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Numerics (in System.Runtime.Numerics.dll)
  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

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

Parameters

left
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The first value to compare.

right
Type: System.UInt64

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 (bigNumber != uNumber)
{
   // Do something...
}

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

.NET Framework

Supported in: 4.6, 4.5, 4

.NET Framework Client Profile

Supported in: 4

.NET for Windows Phone apps

Supported in: Windows Phone 8.1

Portable Class Library
