P: n/a
Can anyone recommend a book for teaching C# to people who have never
programmed and who are interested mainly in text processing?

"Beginning Visual C#" from Wrox was one suggestion.

Text processing? Try "Learning Perl" from O'Reilly. :)

Just kidding, try "Learning C# 2005" by Jesse Liberty (also from
O'Reilly)

Thanks. I am both a programmer and a linguist. Although I know about Perl
and Python and have used Python a good bit, I'm not that fascinated with
them.

I will second that recommendation: "Learning C# 2005" by Liberty and
MacDonald. I am using it for a course which includes those who have never
programmed. It is well written for the new person.

Michael,

If you're going to be doing a lot of text processing then you'll need a
good book on regular expressions. Sorry, no recommendations though.
