C# Cookbook based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is a really cool book. Skim through it, and you¿ll see that all the hard stuff you want to do in .NET or C# are all in one book. You¿ll find some general computer science algorithms implemented in C#, and you¿ll find other things that are simply C# specific. I¿d highly recommend any professional C# programmer adding this to their reference library. The book contains a chapter for each of various C# objects. Beginning with numbers, the book continues through strings, classes, delegates, collections, I/O, threading, and XML to name a few. Some examples of ¿recipes¿ you¿ll find include how to improve string builder performance, issues with bit-shifting, adding notification callbacks, rolling back object changes, determining whether a process has stopped responding, and validating XML. Like many of O¿Reilly¿s other ¿cookbook¿ reference books, this book can be read from cover to cover, but it¿s really designed like a cookbook. The idea is to flip thorough each recipe in a specific section until you find one that fits what you¿re trying to do. While reading through this book, I came across five or six answers to various different problems I¿m currently addressing in my own C# work. This is a definite must-have to your library.
