C++/CLI is arguably the most powerful language on the .NET 2.0 Platform, as it is the only one that gives developers the option to directly access their computer's hardware from within the .NET managed code environment. As such it is ideal for the kind of processor and memory intensive tasks for which C++ has always traditionally been used.

This book gives developers - both the experienced and those who have only taken their first few steps - a small, fast-paced primer that will kick-start them into the world of C++/CLI. In twenty no-fluff chapters Microsoft insiders take readers into the heart of the C++/CLI language and explain both how the language elements work and how Microsoft intends them to be used. At the end of this short book readers will have a deep thorough grounding in the core language elements and the confidence to explore further that comes from a solid understanding of a language's syntax and grammar.

Gordon Hogenson is the manager responsible for the Visual C++ documentation, has worked as a technical writer and testing engineer for Visual C++, C# and other Microsoft products for nine years. He has avid interests in many diverse fields, including botany and organic gardening, chemistry, physics, metaphysics and philosophy.
