  • I've never even HEARD of C#! Haven't been living under a rock exactly - or have I? I just started learning C++. Do I need to switch?



  • Do not swich from C++ to C#! You should learn C++. Its a great launguage. C++ is powerful, portible, and userfirendly. Stick with it and you will be rewarded!

    -C^2


  • exactly.. just keep ur eyes open on c# and be ready when the times come!

    but i have to disagree

    c++ is not powerful! its low level (read pointers) everything else u do that is not pointer-based for example array indexing would be as slow as any other language.

    portable? .. for shell scripts maybe. what can u possibly write these days without a gui and/or the need to interact with the net?

    userfriendly.. can u say templates? how about those 10K error messages?

    Does C# use pointers?

  • yes, u can use pointers in c#:

    int x = 10;

    System.Console.WriteLine( "Before = {0}", x );

    // use pointers
    fixed( int* p = &x )
    {
    *p = 11;
    }

    System.Console.WriteLine( "After = {0}", x );

    u will get
    10
    11

    however, if u use code like the above, ur program is "untrusted" would only run depending on security settings or a digital signature.

    apply "i think" to all the above!



  • : c++ is not powerful! its low level (read pointers) everything else u do that is not pointer-based for example array indexing would be as slow as any other language.

    Not at all. C++ does no array bounds checking, which is in just about every other language, making array indexing fast. C++ tends to do very little checking, which makes it fast.

    : userfriendly.. can u say templates?

    Which in my opinion is the single biggest omission from C#. I've always been a great believer in 'let the compiler catch the error'; if I accidentally put a String in a collection of Integers, I won't find out about it until I get a runtime error reading from the collection... which might be some considerable time later.

    You cannot program in C# without the .NET framework (it relies on the .NET base class library). Also, the compiler requires .NET. Your best bet is to get a CD with everything, you can get the Beta 1 CD from Microsoft for just the price of shipping.



  • you can get just C# from microsofts site its a 125 meg d/l for beta 2 now, and about the cd u where talking about i was thinking of getting it but i need it real soon , so how long do you think it would take to get to sydney australia ?

    Thanx Zero
