Char conversions An implicit conversion from a char to a numeric type works for the numeric types that can accommodate an unsigned short.

Bounds Checking All array indexing is bounds-checked by the runtime. An IndexOutOfRangeException is thrown if you use an invalid index: 48 49 int[] arr = new int[3]; arr[3] = 1; // IndexOutOfRangeException thrown As with Java, array bounds checking is necessary for type safety and simplifies debugging. Generally, the performance hit from bounds checking is minor, and the JIT (Just-in-Time) compiler can perform optimizations, such as determining in advance whether all indices will be safe before entering a loop, thus avoiding a check on each iteration.

3. Changing the flow of execution with braces An else clause always applies to the immediately preceding if statement in the statement block. WriteLine("does not execute"); With braces, you explicitly state your intention. This can improve the readability of nested if statements—even when not required by the compiler. "); } Here, we've arranged the if and else statements to mimic the "elsif" construct of other languages (and C#'s #elif preprocessor directive). Visual Studio's auto-formatting recognizes this pattern and preserves the indentation.
