System_CAPS_noteNote

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit unsigned integer and a BigInteger value are not equal.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

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

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

Parameters

left
Type: System.UInt64

The first value to compare.

right
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 bigNumber = BigInteger.Pow(2, 63) - BigInteger.One;
ulong uNumber = Int64.MaxValue & 0x7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF;
if (uNumber != bigNumber)
{
   // Do something...
}

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