Need a conversion to C# again.. optimized function of last request.

Ciuly around? :-)

var
 i, p: integer;
 b, d: byte;
 s1, s2: string;
const
 mark = chr($4f);

begin
 s2 := strloadfromfile('File.bin');// get data
 s2 := Copy(s2,$1d0, Length(s2)); //skip first 1d0 bytes
 i := 0; // init loop variable
 while i<64 do begin //until all array is filled
  p := pos(mark,s2);// get position of mark
  if p>0 then begin // marker word found, get id
   b := ord(s2[p-1]); // array item
   // ord - return numerical value of char
   if (ord(s2[p-4])=$2c)and(ord(s2[p-3])=$10) then dec(b,3); // check if need to dec item
   a[b] := i; // save item
   inc(i); // shift array index
   s2 := Copy(s2, pos(mark,s2)+length(mark), Length(s2));// copy rest of data
  end else i := 64;//end of parsing
 end;

'a' again is a byte array.

I presume strloadfromfile is one of the functions converted already.

            public byte[] optimized()
            {
                  string s2 = strLoadFromFile("test.bin");
                  s2 = s2.Substring(0x1d0);
                  int p;
                  byte i = 0;
                  int b;
                  byte[] a = new byte[64];
                  while (i<64)
                  {
                        p = s2.IndexOf(mark);
                        if (p>-1)
                        {
                              b = (byte)s2[p-1];
                              if (s2[p-4] == 0x2c && s2[p-3] == 0x10)
                                    b = b - 3;
                              a[b] = i;
                              i++;
                              s2 = s2.Substring(p+1);// 1=length(mark). it's always 1 since it's a char
                        }
                        else
                        {
                              i = 64;
                        }
                  }
                  return a;
            }

btw, the delphi version is not that optimized. copy function will always reallocate the string buffer. so it's better to use posex from strutils unit and work with an index into s2. in C# that would translate to s2.indexOf(mark,the_index);
also note that 1=length(mark). it's always 1 since it's a char. of course if you intend to use a string as a mark, then ignore my optimization and replace that with mark.Length and declare mark as string rather than char.
