Illustrates the size benefits you can achieve by compressing a stream. It also benchmarks the time taken to write the compressed text and the normal text to the underlying files.

Well, the .NET framework already contains the functionality provided by this snippet, however this snippet shows how to use some IO namespace classes and functionality.

If you're into scripting I would suggest F# .. It basically gives you all the benefits of a compiled language and the agile/cool features of a scripting language.. It's pretty much the next big thing in Microsoft and considered to be the language of the future :)

You are converted the dataToHash string inputted in the function to a set of bytes that can be hashed by the hashing algorithm. Once the byte array is hashed it is converted to a string and returned.

The imports keyword is only used to create a shorthand notation for ease of use of the underlying namespace classes. When converted to MSIL the hardcoded IL written is actually System.Console.WriteLine ...

You are actually "importing" the functionality of an assembly when you add it to your project reference's file. P.S you can only use Imports when an external assembly is referenced.

This snippet function hashes a string into an MD5. The function will throw an error if an empty string is provided. Just copy and paste this into a console application, set the Sub Main() as the start up object and run it! You will see how the same hash is created for the "Test" string and a different hash is created for the "Test1" string. If you've got any problems with this snippet just comment..

This snippet does not detect if your computer is connected to the internet. It actually determines if your computer is connected to a network (like LAN etc) :)
