NsDepCop | Namespace Dependency Checker Tool for C#


NsDepCop is a static code analysis tool that helps you to enforce namespace dependency rules in C# projects.

  • Runs as part of the build process and reports dependency problems.
  • No more unplanned or unnoticed dependencies in your system.

What is this dependency control anyway?

Getting Started

  1. Add the NsDepCop NuGet package to your C# projects
  2. Add a file called config.nsdepcop. Edit it and describe dependency rules.
  3. Dependency violations will be underlined in the code editor and also reported at build time just like compiler errors/warnings.

See the Help for details.

Optional Stuff

  • Install the NsDepCop Config XML Schema Support for Visual Studio to get validation and IntelliSense while editing the config.nsdepcop files.
    • For Visual Studio 2017/2019
    • For Visual Studio 2015: see the instructions in Help.

Changes in v2.0

The big change in v2.0 is that the implementation changed from MSBuild task + Visual Studio Extension to a standard Roslyn analyzer.

  • Supports .NET Core / .NET 5 projects too.
  • No need for the NsDepCop Visual Studio Extension any more.
  • Requires Visual Studio 2019 (16.10.0 or later).
    • Dropped support for VS 2015/2017. For those, use NsDepCop v1.11.0.
  • No need for the out-of-process service host any more.
    • No more "Unable to communicate with NsDepCop service".

Please note that the AutoLowerMaxIssueCount feature is temporarily not supported. Do not yet upgrade to v2.0 if you're using that.

How to Run C/C++ in Sublime Text?

C and C++ are the most powerful programming language in the world. Most of the super fast and complex libraries and algorithms are written in C or C++. Most powerful Kernel programs are also written in C. So, there is no way to skip it.

In programming competitions, most programmers prefer to write code in C or C++. Tourist is considered the worlds top programming contestant of all ages who write code in C++.

During programming competitions, programmers prefer to use a lightweight editor to focus on coding and algorithm designing. VimSublime Text, and Notepad++ are the most common editors for us. Apart from the competition, many software developers and professionals love to use Sublime Text just because of its flexibility.

I have discussed the steps we need to complete in this blog post before running a C/C++ code in Sublime Text. We will take the inputs from an input file and print outputs to an output file without using freopen file related functions in C/C++.

Dicey Issues in C/C++

If you are familiar with C/C++then you must have come across some unusual things and if you haven’t, then you are about to. The below codes are checked twice before adding, so feel free to share this article with your friends. The following displays some of the issues:

  1. Using multiple variables in the print function
  2. Comparing Signed integer with unsigned integer
  3. Putting a semicolon at the end of the loop statement
  4. C preprocessor doesn’t need a semicolon
  5. Size of the string matters
  6. Macros and equations aren’t good friends
  7. Never compare Floating data type with double data type
  8. Arrays have a boundary
  9. Character constants are different from string literals
  10. Difference between single(=) and double(==) equal signs.

The below code generates no error since a print function can take any number of inputs but creates a mismatch with the variables. The print function is used to display characters, strings, integers, float, octal, and hexadecimal values onto the output screen. The format specifier is used to display the value of a variable.

  1. %d indicates Integer Format Specifier
  2. %f indicates Float Format Specifier
  3. %c indicates Character Format Specifier
  4. %s indicates String Format Specifier
  5. %u indicates Unsigned Integer Format Specifier
  6. %ld indicates Long Int Format Specifier

A signed integer is a 32-bit datum that encodes an integer in the range [-2147483648 to 2147483647]. An unsigned integer is a 32-bit datum that encodes a non-negative integer in the range [0 to 4294967295]. The signed integer is represented in twos-complement notation. In the below code the signed integer will be converted to the maximum unsigned integer then compared with the unsigned integer.

C# Debugging tools and techniques

Working in C#, as with any language, you’ll soon find that that you need to do some debugging. With C#, thankfully, due to a plethora of debugging tools and techniques, troubleshooting is usually straightforward.

Common debugging techniques
Debugging is highly context-sensitive, and the languages and tooling vary widely. In this post, I’ll be covering specific C# debugging tools and techniques in the next section. However, there are a few things you’ll need to know in any debugging situation.

Loops in C++ | For, While, and Do While Loops in C++

In this Video We are going to see how to use Loops in C++. We will see How to use For, While, and Do While Loops in C++.
C++ is general purpose, compiled, object-oriented programming language and its concepts served as the basis for several other languages such as Java, Python, Ruby, Perl etc.

Using isdigit() in C/C++

In this article, we’ll take a look at using the isdigit() function in C/C++. This is a very simple way to check if any value is a digit or not. Let’s look at how to use this function, using some simple examples.
