Description

Standards, while being definitive, do not usually serve as the best reference to the use of a programming language. Books on languages usually are able to explain usage better, but lack the definitive precision of a standard. This book combines the two; it is the standard with added explanatory material.

Key Features

* Written by members of the standards committee * Annotates the standard with practical implementation advice * The definitive reference to the C# International Standard
