BigInteger.BitwiseOr(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.BitwiseOr(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.BitwiseOr(BigInteger, BigInteger) BigInteger.BitwiseOr(BigInteger, BigInteger) Operator

Definition

Performs a bitwise Or 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 Or (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 Or operation.

Remarks

The BitwiseOr method defines the bitwise Or operation for BigInteger values. The bitwise Or operation sets a result bit only if either or both of the corresponding bits in left and right are set, as shown in the following table.

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

The BitwiseOr method enables code such as the following:

BigInteger number1  = BigInteger.Parse("10343901200000000000");
BigInteger number2  = Byte.MaxValue;
BigInteger result  = number1 | number2;
Dim number1 As BigInteger = BigInteger.Parse("10343901200000000000")
Dim number2 As BigInteger = Byte.MaxValue
Dim result As BigInteger = number1 Or number2

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