I'm working in C# with string searches and finding that it's slow as a sleeping hound dog.
I did some research and found this:
Fast string search
It turns out that basic C code blows the doors off of C# (like 20 to 1) with string searches.
So, how hard would it be for me to learn how to write stuff using strstr in C, given my experience? I don't know jack about pointers, memory leaks, garbage collection, etc.
About how much time can I expect to study to learn how to do it, all the way through compile and use?
Also, is there any way to access it from C# without C# turning it into a dog?
