BigInteger.BitwiseAnd(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.BitwiseAnd(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.BitwiseAnd(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.BitwiseAnd(BigInteger, BigInteger) Operator

Definition

Performs a bitwise And operation on two BigInteger values.

public:
 static System::Numerics::BigInteger operator &(System::Numerics::BigInteger left, System::Numerics::BigInteger right);
public static System.Numerics.BigInteger operator & (System.Numerics.BigInteger left, System.Numerics.BigInteger right);
static member ( &&& ) : System.Numerics.BigInteger * System.Numerics.BigInteger -> System.Numerics.BigInteger
Public Shared Operator And (left As BigInteger, right As BigInteger) As BigInteger

Parameters

left
BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger

The first value.

right
BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger

The second value.

Returns

The result of the bitwise And operation.

Remarks

The BitwiseAnd method defines the bitwise And operation for BigInteger values. The bitwise And operation sets a result bit only if the corresponding bits in left and right are also set, as shown in the following table.

Bit in left Bit in right Bit in result
0 0 0
1 0 0
1 1 1
0 1 0

The BitwiseAnd method enables code such as the following:

BigInteger number1 = BigInteger.Add(Int64.MaxValue, Int32.MaxValue);
BigInteger number2 = BigInteger.Pow(Byte.MaxValue, 10);
BigInteger result = number1 & number2;
Dim number1 As BigInteger = BigInteger.Add(Int64.MaxValue, Int32.MaxValue)
Dim number2 As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(Byte.MaxValue, 10)
Dim result As BigInteger = number1 And number2

The BitwiseAnd method performs the bitwise And operation on two BigInteger values as if they were both in two's complement representation with virtual sign extension.
