BigInteger.LeftShift Operator (BigInteger, Int32)

 

Shifts a BigInteger value a specified number of bits to the left.

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

static let inline (<<<)
        value:BigInteger *
        shift:int : BigInteger

Parameters

value
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The value whose bits are to be shifted.

shift
Type: System.Int32

The number of bits to shift value to the left.

Return Value

Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

A value that has been shifted to the left by the specified number of bits.

The LeftShift method defines the operation of the bitwise left-shift operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

System_CAPS_noteNote

Unlike the bitwise left-shift operation with integer primitives, the LeftShift method preserves the sign of the original BigInteger value.

Languages that do not support custom operators can perform a bitwise left-shift operation by multiplying value by BigInteger.Pow(2,shift). The following example shows that the results are identical to the results of using this operator.
