C# Sharp Exercises: Compare two substrings that only differ in case

C# Sharp String: Exercise-22 with Solution

Write a C# Sharp program to compare two substrings that only differ in case. The first comparison ignores case and the second comparison considers case.

Sample Solution:-

C# Sharp Code:

using System;
class Example22
{
    public static void Main() {
//                 01234567
    String str1 = "COMPUTER";
    String str2 = "computer";
    String str;
    int result;

    Console.WriteLine();
    Console.WriteLine("str1 = '{0}', str2 = '{1}'", str1, str2);
    Console.WriteLine("Ignore case:");
    result = String.Compare(str1, 2, str2, 2, 2, true);
    str = ((result < 0) ? "less than" : ((result > 0) ? "greater than" : "equal to"));
    Console.Write("Substring '{0}' in '{1}' is ", str1.Substring(2, 2), str1);
    Console.Write("{0} ", str);
    Console.WriteLine("substring '{0}' in '{1}'.", str2.Substring(2, 2), str2);

    Console.WriteLine();
    Console.WriteLine("Honor case:");
    result = String.Compare(str1, 2, str2, 2, 2, false);
    str = ((result < 0) ? "less than" : ((result > 0) ? "greater than" : "equal to"));
    Console.Write("Substring '{0}' in '{1}' is ", str1.Substring(2, 2), str1);
    Console.Write("{0} ", str);
    Console.WriteLine("substring '{0}' in '{1}'.", str2.Substring(2, 2), str2);
    }
}
  

Sample Output:

str1 = 'COMPUTER', str2 = 'computer'                                                                          
Ignore case:                                                                                                  
Substring 'MP' in 'COMPUTER' is equal to substring 'mp' in 'computer'.                                        
                                                                                                              
Honor case:                                                                                                   
Substring 'MP' in 'COMPUTER' is greater than substring 'mp' in 'computer'.
