BigInteger.Equality Operator (BigInteger, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether the values of two BigInteger objects are equal.

Namespace:  System.Numerics
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Numerics (in System.Runtime.Numerics.dll)
  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

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

Parameters

left
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The first value to compare.

right
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the left and right parameters have the same value; otherwise, false.

The Equality(BigInteger, BigInteger) method defines the operation of the equality 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 False
Console.WriteLine(number1 == number3);             // Displays True

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.Equals(BigInteger) instance method instead.
