Chapter 40. System.Text

The System.Text namespace provides encoding and decoding capabilities for arrays of bytes and characters. These classes allow you to convert characters easily from different subsets of Unicode encodings, such as ASCII, UTF-8, and UTF-16. Additionally, a string-building class allows you to modify strings without creating intermediate string objects. Figure 40-1 shows the types in this namespace.
