It's probably due to the fact that a lot of C# devs were previously Visual C++ devs and MFC apps. had an m_ naming convention for member variables.
We don't really need it but some sort of...

The convention is to use Camel Case for all local variables and method parameters, so your first example would be OK.
The second example is Hungarian notation and is specifically not recommended...

You could try the free Visual C++ 2010 Express. Since you are a TextPad user you will find that the editor is fairly similar, so it will ease the familiarisation process. Though that will be the...

Not a direct answer to your question but you may find Math.Net and Solver Foundation useful.

It is dead in the sense that Microsoft is not developing it any further or supporting it beyond allowing the runtime to run on Vista and Windows 2008. There is nothing to stop you continuing to write...

I'm aware of that link but I couldn't care less what its says. I've used IE 6, IE 7, Opera (various versions up to current), Firefox 1.x to current and IMO Firefox is still the best. The relevant...

MS provides a free Office 2007 Compatibility pack which is available for Office 2000 which means I can in fact open docx documents. Of course, had I still been using Office 97 I'd have been in...

Well, in this case it's not "letting you get away with anything." It's conforming to the standard!
Why? It conforms to the standard! Or are you saying that the standards committee made the...

You're out-of-date. That behaviour was fixed in VC++ 2003.
Actually, rather than doing their own thing, MS was merely sticking to original C++ behaviour regarding scope and then being slow to...

OK, yes I agree with you there. There is some excellent open source software around. I use quite a lot myself. Recently I've been using WatiN for example. Superb. Its documentation isn't that great...

In my experience, open source software ranges from poor to excellent; no different from commercial software.
Yes. The Windows Server OSes (at least 2003 and 8) seem to be rated more favourably...

Look up ListItem. It has a key and value.
ddCombo.Items.Add(new ListItem("HelloWorld", 1));

Yes. Basically, I just posted the first bit of code I could find that made use of a call to Assembly.GetType(). Hopefully this should be enough for the OP to be getting on with. But elaboration does...

Thanks for that correction. :)

VS 2008 is available now to MSDN Subscribers. All the VS 2008 Express editions are available now to everyone. Also the .NET 3.5 runtime is.
The official launch date for VS 2008 is the end of...

From an old (.NET 1.1) code snippet I have:
Assembly assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
// Find out from config file which ContinentFactory to create
string continentFactory =...

I think you're stuck with C++ then.

Sounds like you need a multi-dictionary. The free PowerCollections library on codeplex provides such a data structure.
Here's a usage example:
