BigInteger.RightShift Operator (BigInteger, Int32)

 

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

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 right.

Return Value

Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

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

The RightShift method defines the operation of the bitwise right-shift 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 perform a bitwise right-shift operation by dividing value by BigInteger.Pow(2,shift) and subtracting 1 times shift for negative values. The following example shows that the results are identical to the results of using this operator.

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

If shift is greater than or equal to the number of bits in a positive BigInteger value, the result of the right-shift operation is BigInteger.Zero. If shift is greater than the number of bits in a negative BigInteger value, the result of the right-shift operation is BigInteger.MinusOne.
