Calculate Fibonacci words in C#
You can find Fibonacci words by concatenating previous Fibonacci words much as you calculate the Fibonacci sequence by adding previous values in the sequence. The first two Fibonacci words are: S0 = 0 S1 = 01 The following Fibonacci words … Continue reading

Use the BigInteger structure in C#
The long data type can hold values between roughly 9.2 x 1018 and 9.2 x 1018, but sometimes even that range isn’t big enough. The .NET Framework 4.0 (C# 4.0 or Visual Studio 2010) introduced the BigInteger structure to represent … Continue reading

Generate letters with given frequencies in C#
This example generates random letters with the frequencies they have in normal English text. The following code shows how the example gets started. // The letter frequencies. See: // http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letter_frequency private float[] Frequencies = { 8.167f, 1.492f, 2.782f, 4.253f, 12.702f, … Continue reading
Draw a picturefilled histogram in C#
The example Make a simple histogram in C# shows how to draw a histogram. This example shows how to fill the histogram’s bars with pictures. The following TileRectangle method fills a rectangle with an image. // Tile an area from … Continue reading
Linkback to the Secret Santa Problem
Tom left a comment to my post Calculate the number of secret Santa permutations in C#. He used that example to build a site in JavaScript explaining how the algorithm works. It’s a pretty cool little page. Drop by and … Continue reading
Make a dicerolling simulation in C#
This example performs a simulation of rolling two sixsided dice. It’s related to my book Interview Puzzles Dissected, which includes several examples that involve rolling dice. When you enter a number of trials and click Roll, the program uses the … Continue reading

Draw the Weierstrass function in C#
The Weierstrass function was discovered by Karl Weierstrass in 1872. It’s an odd function that is continuous everywhere but differentiable nowhere. I’ll explain what that means shortly. Here’s the function: Here: The following two sections explain what it means to … Continue reading
