Array Converter

I've created a quick C# program that converts a comma separated database (.csv) into a C# array format.  I'm going to use this to include the AISC Shapes Database into the AISC Shapes Library program executable file.  The library will be a stand alone library now.  There are simpler ways to do this, but this was a good learning and review exercise for me.

Source Code

I doubt many people will use this, but you never know.

AISC Shapes Browser

I've created a kinda nifty program to easily search through the AISC database of steel shapes.  When it's finished, it may quite handy to architects, however at the moment it's really only useful to engineers who know what all the obscure variables mean.


The search functions really only work for the name of the shapes.  Attempting to use it for other purposes (which it appears to be set up for) will almost certainly cause the program to crash immediately.
