Where’s my pointer!

In Programming on 26 April, 2006 at 10:40 am

The single most baffling thing about changing to program in C# from C++ is that pointer is not recommended.  So it will take some time to get use to it.  Especially when a lot of algorithm is base on using pointer to access certain data structure.

C# still contain pointer, in fact the syntax is exactly the same as that in C++, just that it is consider unsafe to use pointer.  Your program might access some invalid address using pointer method causing access violation and thus this is consider unsafe by C#.

I hope I can really manage to do without pointer.  I really hope so.
