Why is the #include directive not necessary in C#? Is this due to the fact that C# has a more developed/inclusive/restrictive compilation process vs the raw nature of C/C++ preprocessor, compiler, linker, etc.? (i.e. you're developing in Visual Studio for C#).
I'm just curious how the compilation process knows where to look for additional classes.
Edit: I realize you wouldn't need the actual #include statement in C# because that doesn't make sense. However, I'm more curious as to how your C# program is aware of the existence of other classes without any kind of indicator.
C# has something similar. To use classes in other libraries etc. you need to add a reference to the assembly and then use the
using key word followed by the name of the reference like this:
This example namespace would enable me to access classes such as
Dictionary<TKey, TValue> etc.
