LastIndexOf("/"c) -- what is "c" ?

I'm trying to convert some VB to C#, and ive run into a small problem due to my lack of experience with VB.....

below is the VB code:
Dim s As String = entry.Name.ToLower
Dim i As Integer = s.LastIndexOf("/"c)
on the 2nd line, at the end, it has the "/"c ...... what is the "c" there for?
the "literal conversion" to C# of the above is this:
string s = entry.Name.ToLower();
int i = s.LastIndexOf("/"c);
but that "c" at the end causing compiling errors...... so.... im a little confused?

any help would be appriciated.

One way to do this:

Dim ForwardSlash As Char = CType("/", Char)
Dim s As String = entry.Name.ToLower
Dim i As Integer = s.LastindexOf(ForwardSlash)

Like "C*" instead of Like "C%"?
I know it's trivial but I'm building programs for a house that has all users who are trained on Informix and Microsoft products. When given a Query By Example, they are used to placing "*" characters in for wildcards. Management complains that teaching them to use "%" in certain instances is going to be a support problem. Is there a way to alter the Powerbuilder wildcard character in a generic way so as to allow for this functionality? Pointers for how others have dealt with this problem are appreciated.

"Me" is better than "You"
Yes I know, strings are frozen. But let me talk about it, I really can't get through the idea of a PC talkin to me. I consider my PC as an extension of myself, not a dumb companion who addresses Me as You. Yes there are times when I get angry with Him while I work and get wrong calculations etc.., but it really is my fault, Me using wrong istructions and eventually wanting to find someone else to blame, but it's Me. And yes, I consider Thunderbird my mail program, reading my mail on my PC as Me. So I personally like to have Me in the header bar as a compact address ...

Using "+" or "||"
Using SQLAnywhere 5.5.04, I've gotten into the habit of using "||" in ISQL to indicate a string concatenation. I needed to paste my SQL statement into the PowerBuilder script painter for some embedded SQL, and PB didn't like the "||" very much at all. I changed it to "+" and it seems to be ok. Do these two operators indicate ~exactly~ the same thing? moin, afaik these two's are not the same! if you're using "||" and any term is NULL then in the resultstring the term will be ignored if you use "+" then the resu...
