    Question C# Effective?

    I'm so confused about this whole C# language, I know the syntax is like C, but the interface is like Visual BASIC. I have been contemplating buying the software for quite some time, but everything I read is very confusing. All I want to know is if C# has the same really reliable fast code like C\C++ and the same easy to use IDE like Visual BASIC......Heh the only thing I'm afraid of is the Common library idea for the whole .Net framework, the thought of my software running overtop a runtime bothers me....

    It has a better IDE than VB. If you know VB, you will like that one. It's slightly slower than C++. But if you need that last percentage of speed, you don't have a user interface anyway. If you need the speed of C++, you can still use it by embedding DLLs.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Thanks, I don't like embedding dll files i'm real antsy about my code requiring dependencies, sorta bothersome.

    is that just slightly slow ? but many ones told me C# much slow that C or C++.

    C# is slower than C++ but still way faster than VB or Java.

    Real numbers depend on what you want to do. Java/C++/C# come with free compilers ( not IDEs though ). Write a simple example of what you want to do and run and measure them all.

    well, not really.

    C# is slower than C or C++, but all depends on what you're looking at. If you write a visual app, then you would be a fool not to go for it. It's really neat. From C++ to C#, I've cut down my development time by 10. Easily. I think it's great. When I need performance, I write a dll or a COM object in C++ and call it from C# (although not a very good idea).
