.NET: case insensitive string replace without using RegEx (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/16

Two ways to do a case insensitive string replace without using RegEx (which often is not a solution).

Thanks User Tim Schmelter for pointing me at those.

.NET/C#: some starting posts on the `async` and `await` keywords

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/02

Last year’s summer, I posted some .NET/C#: some starting posts on the `yield` keyword and mentioned that `async` and `await` might be the most complicated compiler transform.

So here are some posts to learn more about async and await: Read the rest of this entry »

Danny Thorpe active on various Bitcoin reposiories – via: Best C# Article of October 2014 Nicolas Dorier – NBitcoin : Build Them All…

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/01

Via Best C# Article of October 2014 Nicolas Dorier – NBitcoin I learned that dthorpe (yes, that is indeed Danny Thorpe many people know him from the Delphi, C# and Google world) is active as Contributors to NicolasDorier/NBitcoin and on quite some Bitcoin related repositories.

When we met last summer, he was visiting the Bitcoin 2014 conference in Amsterdam. It is really good to see his activity, and I really hope his Opex.io venture (see his LinkedIn profile) will take off, as his ideas are sound.

Delphi, C#, VB.NET and SQL all have escapes to use reserved words as identifiers

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/04

Normally you would not want to use a reserved word as an identifier. But sometimes it can be very convenient, for instance for a code generator that wraps remoting calls or does ORM.

Both Delphi and C# have an escape for this:

The prefixes are to tell the compiler knows you really know what you are doing, and are using a reserved word as an identifier.

The cool thing: in the Run Time Type Information (Delphi) or Reflection (C# and VB.NET) you will see the names without the prefix.

Some examples from StackOverflow: Read the rest of this entry »
