When you need answers for programming with C# 5.0, this practical and tightly focused book tells you exactly what you need to know—without long introductions or bloated samples. Easy to browse, it’s ideal as quick reference or as a guide to get you rapidly up to speed if you already know Java, C++, or an earlier version of C#.
Written by the authors of C# 5.0 in a Nutshell, this book covers the entire C# 5.0 language, including:
All of C#’s fundamentals
Advanced topics such as operator overloading, type constraints, covariance & contravariance, iterators, nullable types, operator lifting, lambda expressions & closures
LINQ, starting with sequences, lazy execution and standard query operators, and finishing with a complete reference to query expressions
Dynamic binding and C# 5.0’s new asynchronous functions
Unsafe code & pointers, custom attributes, preprocessor directives, and XML documentation
