Split Function that Supports Text Qualifiers

I have always appreciated the String.Split function (and the Split function provided with VB.Net). The Split function divides a text value into seperate parts based on a specified character, or delimiter. The Split function returns the parsed text value as a string array.

Unfortunately the Split function does not support text qualifiers. A text qualifier is a character used to mark the bounds of a block of text. Usually a quotation mark or apostraphe is used for the text qualifier althoug...

Undocumented Fusion

In this article, we'll take a look at the undocumented and internal (but useful) class called Microsoft.CLRAdmin.Fusion that resides in the mscorcfg assembly (a core component in the .NET framework). Using this class, we'll be able to examine the contents of the three Fusion assembly caches as well as the managed application history. Sure - gacutil already provides some of this capability, but we'll access the functionality programmatically and (hopefully) learn some .NET spelunking techniques ...

When creating ASP pages you can choose to use a number of scripting languages, such as VBScript, JScript, PerlScript, and even Python. While this may seem all fine and good, realize that VBScript, the most popular server-side scripting languages, is a watered-down version of VisualBasic. Think of VBScript as VB-Lite - certain things are missing....

In this article I'll show you a tip to minimize the code you write when using tracing. If implemented, when you compile your release code you will have absolutly no tracing information what-so-ever included. This is achomplished by using Conditional Compilation.

Screen Scraping means reading the contents of a web page. Suppose you go to, what you see is the interface which includes buttons, links, images etc. What we don't see is the target url of the links, the name of the images, the method used by the button which can be POST or GET. In other words we don't see the HTML behind the pages. Screen Scraping pulls the HTML of the web page. This HTML includes every HTML tag that is used to make up the page. The question that comes to our mind is ...

Screen Scraping is the process of reading, and optionally displaying the content of a web site. It can be a useful technique and is quite easy to do in .NET. Screen scraping is a lot easier in .NET than it was in classic ASP where you had to use the infamous INET.DLL. The System.Net namespace provides all the methods we need to perform screen scraping in .NET. I will show you the code without a great deal of explanation. In this first example program we are going to screen scrape www.dotnetjohn....
