Ultra Rapid Tools Development

Imagine that you need to rename dozens of files in a short time according to some rules. What can you do?
  • Search internet for a tool making it possible
  • Write batch file
  • etc.
Last thing in such case is downloading or even installing from some carrier full developing environment. It takes a lot of time and mostly we don't have it much to make the job done. .NET framework is now included in most of up to date Windows operating systems. Creating console applications is a main feature of GoldenSharp (still you can create every other possible assembly in .NET such as a class library or WinForms application) and as its leightweight it fits perfectly as an fully functional portable developing environment.

The power of C#

C# language is intended to be a simple, modern, general-purpose, object-oriented programming language. The .NET framework's Base Class Library provides a large range of features including user interface, data access, database connectivity, cryptography, web application development, numeric algorithms, and network communications. Thanks to these concepts and simplicity of our IDE - GoldenSharp is an excellent choice as the development environment of tools and for educational purposes.
