Default detecting latin letter in a string

Hi,



Is there a way to determine if a string contains Latin letters or not?

Or if the string is written in English or not?

You could create an array of all the characters you would like to search for then search the string character by character for any of the listed characters.

You could use an English dictionary list of words and see if the words in your string are in the list.

hi,

i found the solution. the solution is by converting each letter to int32 to get the unicode by using System.Convert.ToInt32('anyletter'). letters from a to z should give number equal or less then 128.

What about the characters that come before 'a' such as tab, space, etc? Don't forget to set the lower limit of the search.

P2P is a good from for the detection of Latin letters. The majority of the Latin words and my assignment help reviews are marked for the joys for all humans. The change is ivied for the Latin. Proportion is found for the use of the nomination for the changes for the language for all ideal paths for the P2P forums.
