Long Paths in .NET
For those that followed the Long Path in .NET series that Kim Hamilton wrote a while back, you will be pleased to know that we just released a library over on CodePlex that adds Long Path support to .NET. This project is one of four new experimental projects + source that we released on our new BCL CodePlex site:
BigRational builds on the BigInteger introduced in .NET Framework 4 to create an arbitrary-precision rational number class.
This library provides functionality to make it easier to work with paths that are longer than the current 259 character limit.
PerfMonitor is a command-line tool for profiling the system using Event Tracing for Windows (ETW). PerfMonitor is built on top of the TraceEvent library.
An experimental library that greatly simplifies reading Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) events.
Expect to see a lot more of these experimental libraries in the future from the BCL. Play around with them and tell us what you think.
