# BigInt class Null safety

An arbitrarily large integer value.

Big integers are signed and can have an arbitrary number of significant digits, only limited by memory.

To create a big integer from the provided number, use BigInt.from.

var bigInteger = BigInt.from(-1); // -1
bigInteger = BigInt.from(0.9999); // 0
bigInteger = BigInt.from(-10.99); // -10
bigInteger = BigInt.from(0x7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF); // 9223372036854775807
bigInteger = BigInt.from(1e+30); // 1000000000000000019884624838656

To parse a large integer value from a string, use parse or tryParse.

var value = BigInt.parse('0x1ffffffffffffffff'); // 36893488147419103231
value = BigInt.parse('12345678901234567890'); // 12345678901234567890

To check whether a big integer can be represented as an int without losing precision, use isValidInt.

print(bigNumber.isValidInt); // false

To convert a big integer into an int, use toInt. To convert a big integer into an double, use toDouble.

var bigValue = BigInt.from(10).pow(3);
print(bigValue.isValidInt); // true
print(bigValue.toInt()); // 1000
print(bigValue.toDouble()); // 1000.0

Implemented types

## Constructors

BigInt.from(num value)
Creates a big integer from the provided value number.
factory

## Properties

bitLength int
Returns the minimum number of bits required to store this big integer.
hashCode int
The hash code for this object.
isEven bool
Whether this big integer is even.
isNegative bool
Whether this number is negative.
isOdd bool
Whether this big integer is odd.
isValidInt bool
Whether this big integer can be represented as an int without losing precision.
runtimeType Type
A representation of the runtime type of the object.
Returns the sign of this big integer.

## Methods

abs()
Returns the absolute value of this integer.
compareTo(BigInt other) int
Compares this to other.
override
gcd(BigInt other)
Returns the greatest common divisor of this big integer and other.
modInverse(BigInt modulus)
Returns the modular multiplicative inverse of this big integer modulo modulus.
modPow(BigInt exponent, BigInt modulus)
Returns this integer to the power of exponent modulo modulus.
noSuchMethod(Invocation invocation) → dynamic
Invoked when a non-existent method or property is accessed.
inherited
pow(int exponent)
Returns this to the power of exponent.
remainder(BigInt other)
Returns the remainder of the truncating division of this by other.
toDouble()
Returns this BigInt as a double.
toInt() int
Returns this BigInt as an int.
Converts this to a string representation in the given radix.
toSigned(int width)
Returns the least significant width bits of this integer, extending the highest retained bit to the sign. This is the same as truncating the value to fit in width bits using an signed 2-s complement representation. The returned value has the same bit value in all positions higher than width.
toString()
Returns a String-representation of this integer.
override
toUnsigned(int width)
Returns the least significant width bits of this big integer as a non-negative number (i.e. unsigned representation). The returned value has zeros in all bit positions higher than width.

## Operators

operator %(BigInt other)
Euclidean modulo operator.
operator &(BigInt other)
Bit-wise and operator.
operator *(BigInt other)
Multiplies other by this big integer.
operator +(BigInt other)
Adds other to this big integer.
operator -(BigInt other)
Subtracts other from this big integer.
operator /(BigInt other)
Double division operator.
operator <(BigInt other) bool
Whether this big integer is numerically smaller than other.
operator <<(int shiftAmount)
Shift the bits of this integer to the left by shiftAmount.
operator <=(BigInt other) bool
Whether other is numerically greater than this big integer.
operator ==(Object other) bool
The equality operator.
inherited
operator >(BigInt other) bool
Whether this big integer is numerically greater than other.
operator >=(BigInt other) bool
Whether other is numerically smaller than this big integer.
operator >>(int shiftAmount)
Shift the bits of this integer to the right by shiftAmount.
operator ^(BigInt other)
Bit-wise exclusive-or operator.
operator unary-()
Return the negative value of this integer.
operator |(BigInt other)
Bit-wise or operator.
operator ~()
The bit-wise negate operator.
operator ~/(BigInt other)
Truncating integer division operator.
