    A C# program .... ask the C# board .. don't start a new thread, a mod'll move it, assuming you did mean C#, and not C.

    What is the difference between C and C#? I thought they were the same... or perhaps C# is object orientated? If so, then sorry. My program is written on C.

    >What is the difference between C and C#?
    Um, just about everything.

    >I thought they were the same...
    No, not even close. C# may be derived from C after a fashion, but they're two wildly different languages.

    >or perhaps C# is object orientated?
    Yes, but it's not "object oriented C" as your statement implies. In fact, C# is so different from both C and C++, it's a wonder why we even have a board for it.

    Ok... that's it. I propose that this website change it's name from cprogramming.com to programminglanguagesinwhichthekeyletterinitsnameis c.com

    Then everyone is happy. Except the C++/CLI people.

    Hmm, it's too much of a pain to register a new domain. Why don't we just discriminate with extreme prejudice against any language other than standard C or C++? The people who were the driving force behind the C# forum have been banned anyway, so there's no need to keep 'them' happy.

    Remind me never to elect you into government...

    No, I agree personally. The C# board is really a waste of bandwidth. It has no more reason to be here than a Java forum and should be removed. I do believe a few of the main posters their have their own forum in which they can have C# discussion, but I could be wrong about that.

    ...oh, and who got banned? Was it your doing? Did you party all night and get drunk when it happened?

    Prelude for president!

    >Was it your doing?
    No, but I really wanted to.

    I don't get drunk.

    Hmmm, i've read a short history of C and C++. it turns out that C++ is a "pimped up" version of C which incorporates OOP advantages and error/exception handling? So, at first glance, people would think that C# is an even better version of C or C++... and now i learn that it's a totally diff language? LOL... whoever invented C# anyways? and why did he chose such a name?

    hmm, just wanna ask, which types of applications is C# best? or which types of applications does C# edge out C and C++?

    A wise man would refrain from saying that in the C forum. Come to think of it, a wise man would avoid saying that in the C++ forum too.

    >So, at first glance, people would think that C# is an even better version of C or C++
    Yea, it's trying to mooch off of the success of C and C++.

    >whoever invented C# anyways?
    Anders Hejlsberg was the primary architect behind C#, but it's a Microsoft invention based (at first glance) largely off of Java.

    >and why did he chose such a name?
    Rumor has it that # resembles two ++'s, one of top of the other. In other words, C++++.

    >or which types of applications does C# edge out C and C++?
    .NET applications. C++ was butchered by Microsoft's compiler to support .NET features, but it's ugly and awkward.

    @Prelude:

    why isnt it wise to say that? i've read in some books that C++ is a "more advanced" version of C (because it has all the powers of C plus plus more). Or are the authors of the books wrong? if so, how are they mistaken? i thought C and C++ were family?

    ".NET applications. C++ was butchered by Microsoft's compiler to support .NET features, but it's ugly and awkward."
    -> so basically, C# also has the powers of C and C++ combined? plus plus the .NET support? hmmm, so whats wrong with that? i think it's great that people try to improve on things, wouldnt you? and besides, it's not like the use of C# is limited right? anybody can learn and use C# (im planning on learning it too, someday )

    So basically, im just asking what is it that ticks you guys off against C#? i've also noticed that in Java. For me, more langauages == more choices. And with more choices comes more possibilities, more innovation. And the fact that new languages which incorporate some previous language's powers and adds more powers implies that the programming community is moving forward, right? im just curious here
