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

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

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.
