[.net] Help a beginner with 3 questions

Recommended Posts

I have three questions that I would like help with. 1)How can I change the default command prompt path to something else. For example if I do CD C:\windows\doc....... The next time I use the command prompt the default will return so I have to use the CD command again which is really annoying. 2)Does anyone know of any good C# IDE that I can use? Something like Dev-C++ but with C# language instead. 3)Can anyone give me a link to a free ebook or a tutorial on C#. I want something that doesn't except you to know a prior programming language. Something very basic please. I know everyone is going to say google it but I did google for a free tutorial/ebook but everything is either to complicated because it requires prior programming language knowledge or just realy sucks because it doesn't explain everything in detail. Thanks.

If your budget is stuck at a solid $0, then I recommend (highly, too!) Borland's C#Builder Personal. It lets you develop whatever you want with tons of features, as long as it's non-commercial. Poke around on http://www.borland.com for that. I hear SharpDevelop is getting popular too, but I can't speak for that one.

*fights urge to say Google* :)

If you're serious about learning C#, then you might need to invest in a book if the resources on the internet aren't enough for you. Personally, I found the tutorials returned by "C# tutorials" into Google to be sufficient for me to catch on to the basics, and I self-taught myself the more intricate stuff as I went along by examining others' sourcecode and toying around with my own example projects. If you've never programmed before, then I guess the tutorials would seem over your head. I suggest starting with a simpler language, if that's the case.

Good luck!
