Inequality Operator (BigInteger, Int64)

BigInteger.Inequality Operator (BigInteger, Int64)

 
equivalentCodeEntityM:System.Numerics.BigInteger.CompareTo(System.Int64)

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

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 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);
long number = Int64.MaxValue;
if (bigNumber != number)
{
   // Do something...
}   

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

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.
