Description Boris Scheiman 2013-06-06 13:39:46 UTC
It seems that the current mono code for BigInteger / operator>> (probably even <<) is bugged. For instance:


var bi = BigInteger.Parse("230794411440927908251127453634");
var bi2 = bi >> 32;
Console.WriteLine("bi >> 32: " + bi2);

var bi3 = bi;

for (int i = 0; i < 32; i++)
    bi3 >>= 1;

Console.WriteLine("bi >> 32 for: " + bi3);

2013-06-06 12:37:34.046 Tests[29073:c07] bi >> 32: 53736011371418479095
2013-06-06 12:37:34.047 Tests[29073:c07] bi >> 32 for: 53736011367507257557

bi >> 32 generates an incorrect value, whereas looping >> 1 returns the correct value. .NET confirms this.

Confirmed. It seems the DLR code has changed a lot since it was imported / tweaked.

c.c. Rodrigo who has extensive history with the code ;-)

This works with master.
