BigInteger.Inequality Operator (BigInteger, BigInteger)


Returns a value that indicates whether two BigInteger objects have different values.

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

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


Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The first value to compare.

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 number1 = 945834723;
BigInteger number2 = 345145625;
BigInteger number3 = 945834723; 
Console.WriteLine(number1 != number2);             // Displays True
Console.WriteLine(number1 != number3);             // Displays False

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