C and C# what is the difference
i just started programming in C and i got a little confused when i came here and saw C#
Well, C is a procedural language and C# is an Object Oriented language for a start. Other than that, they share some similarities in their syntax, but are really not that closely related.
Thanks for telling me
It would have be eating at me all day
C# is a language that was designed specifically for .NET. .NET is a "framework", and basically you install it on your PC and then any program written for .NET can run on it. It's goal was to provide a universal environment for programs, but of course it's only reall in use in MS systems right now. www.mono-project.com is the best I've seen for other systems.
C#, like dalek says, shares a lot of the syntax with C and C++ (and also java). What I like most about it is that it is VERY intuitive. The function names are so easy to interpret, and if you learned a bit of OOP you could read C# very well.
How should you say C#?
I always say C plus plus, and C, but I don't know what I should say exactly for this one. Should I say C number?
>How should you say C#?
Which I assume comes from the 'sharp' in music represented by the same symbol. You may also hear of a couple of other languages, like J# which is a Java-based language, also made just for .NET, but since it was also made to be like Java, C# has more power.
