A long-cherished desire of programmers to have the best of visual basic (VB), C and C++ in one language may have been answered by a new solution from Microsoft, C#.
C# (pronounced C sharp) is a hybrid of C and C++, two of the most popular programming languages used by software developers to write applications for Windows. It also has many of the useful features of VB. While VB is easy to read, write and maintain, and while the powerful languages like C and C++ are flexible, C# has all of these wonderful features. Providing balance between power and productivity, C# sharp is the language of the future. It makes development faster and easier. It is thus expected to be the leading language for Microsoft for writing COM++ and window-based programs for enterprise computing.
