Default data structures in C#


I'm moving from C++ to .net (C#) and would like to know if there are
any good books on data strucutures, what to use when. For example what would I use in C# where I made use of a linked list in C++.
Also there seems to be no books about algorithms with C# code published?

regards, Xanoo

Algorithms are just algorithms aren't they? Isn't that just a matter of learning C# and converting C++ algorithms to C#?

I agree with you Peter... Algorithms are abstract, and should be independent of prorgamming language. However some people feel more comfortable explaning an algorithm in a known programming language.

I would say that the same more or less apply for data structures. I have read the book Introduction to Algorithms by Cormen, Leiserson and Rivest. It is a good and thorough book that covers data structures and algorithms with various functionality.

ok I have an example of a structure..

I have in C++ made a Linked list with Sports objects, with a side list with League objects. In this there would be an array of team objects and a two dimensional array of matches.

In C# I would try to make an ArrayList called sportsList. Inside would be ArrayLists of leagueList. One such list would have an array of team objects.

How would I setup access to this this array, or individual team objects?

In C++ I would take out each object and make a help-pointer to the object I would be interested in working with, though since there are no pointers in C# I assume there is another way to set a reference to a nested object.

Same goes with executing methods in an object from another object.

regards, xan

An easy answer without all of the conjecture is that an ArrayList is close to a link list except a lot easier to use. You will probably find it a little bulky overhead wise though.
