Overview

The .NET Framework has a variety of string manipulation features, but incorrect or ill-considered use of these methods could drastically increase your memory and processor consumption. This book teaches you how to make use of regular expressions to match and replace text, and how to manipulate text using the various string matching, manipulation, and replacement classes. Issues such as Internationalization and data conversion will also be investigated.

Every developer has to manipulate text, often on a regular basis. However, even an experienced C# developer may not have fully utilized the various options now made available through the .NET Framework. The StringBuilder class is one that provides much more memory-efficient string manipulation than when using the String object, whereas regular expressions, although popular in Perl and other UNIX/C-like languages, are unintelligible to those not proficient in this technology. Regular Expressions provide an incredibly powerful and compact way of matching and replacing text. The Internationalization chapter deals with ensuring that your application can be ported to different languages and character sets. This book is a one-stop shop for any developer who manipulates text, using concatenation or otherwise.
