I don't know who downvoted you, you are correct. I fixed up the links.


this one is an eye opener and very humble too http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2186595/c-is-there-a-diff...

edit2: oooh this one is good as well http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3110154/why-is-the-explic...

edit3: Not from Eric but check out this C# code:

    var x = foo as byte[];    // doesn't compile
    object bar = foo;
    var f = bar as byte[];    // succeeds
    var g = f[0];             // g = 255
edit4: oh and check out this description of c# compiler actions http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1917935/how-does-c-compil...


Is twos compliment behavior guaranteed in C#?


Yes, check out the Partition I 12.1 table 6 of ECMA-335 standard
