Default Diff between C & C#

Hi

I have been reading around for the difference in C & C#, however, I still do not quite understand the difference they make.
Could anyone like give me a short overview on what it can do? I have only come across C# in ASP.NET before~ is there any difference?

Thank you

They are two completely different programming languages.

C# was designed to have similar language syntax to C and C++ (in the sense that it uses braces for statement blocks, semi-colons for statement termination and has some common keywords such as 'if' and 'for'). It is used only to write Microsoft .Net Framework programs. These can be server based web applications (ASP.Net) or desktop applications (Winforms) or any other kind of windows application (services, enterprise level applications etc).

C is a much more low level programming language and is available on many operating systems and environments. Microsoft supports a version of C++ which can also talk to the .Net Framework (Managed C++).

Hi, thank you fo replying. Just want to ask, if I want to develop an application which sends SMS/MMS over WiFi using Windows OS phone, which language is a recommendation? And perhaps could you advise me on which aspects should I take note of?
Thank you! Sorry to trouble you again, first time trying with C programming.

I've no idea - sounds incredibly complicated and unlikely to be an easy thing for someone new to either language.

C, I think. Programmin' with C# on the mobile phone needs the compact Framework, which is weaker in function and architecture. When u are performin' a low-level hardware programmin', C is the better choice~~ :)
