[explain how it's like Java and C++]
For what is C# used?"C# is intended to be suitable for writing applications for both hosted and embedded systems, ranging from the very large that use sophisticated operating systems, down to the very small having dedicated functions.Although C# applications are intended to be economical with regards to memory and processing power requirements, the language was not intended to compete directly on performance and size with C or assembly language." (from "C# Language Specification")"Microsoft Hits a New Programming Note" was supposed to tell more of the real C# story, but was "edited to fit" down to this  size.
Can C# be used with Tcl or Tk?2003/01/06 JJM - Yes, it can be used with Tcl/Tk via TclBridge.2008/09/16 JJM - Also, see Eagle, a Tcl implementation in C# (also allows full access to "real" Tcl/Tk).CL hopes to return at some point to argue that there are other potential links between C# and Tcl/Tk--though TclBridge is certainly a fine one on its own.See also the example "platform-independent UI (PIGUI)" that uses Tcl and Tk. This comes with the "Shared Source" version of the CLI and the C# and JScript compilers at . Very interesting stuff, coming from MS themself! It shows how to integrate directly by just declaring the Tcl and Tk DLL interfaces in C#.Tcl Interpreter in C# Application sample of usage of tcl84.dll from C# Application by using PInvoke.Yet another way C# and Tcl co-operate is through ticklesharp.
There's a great deal of competition for mindshare among those who think they want to program with C#. Among the leading online resources are:
- http://www.codeproject.com, a very active site with both edited content and user contributions on C#, ASP, and MFC.
- http://www.csharptoday.com, a subscription-based site backed by Wrox
- Microsoft's own "Visual C# .NET Home Page"
