Letter after a number, what is this called?

6

What's the name of it?

double  d1 = 0d;
decimal d2 = 0L;
float   d3 = 0f;

And where can I find a character reference that I can use? If I want to do a cast from 0 to short , is there any letter for this?

What's the name of it?

There is no proper name for this, it is often referred to as suffix , numeric suffix or type suffix ).

  

And where can I find a character reference that I can use?

You can find a reference of the characters used by C # in this link (column Type Suffix ). Basically they are:

  • M or m to decimal .
  • D or d to double .
  • F or f to float .
  • L or l to long .
  • U or u to uint .
  • UL or ul to ulong .

It is optional to write in uppercase or lowercase, but it is recommended in the case of long to use the uppercase form to not confuse with the character 1 (one).

  

If I want to cast a cast from 0 to short, is there any letter for this?

No, the C # specification does not dedicate a suffix to short type (not for and char ).

Curiousness: for ulong type, in addition to UL and ul , any variation can be used with the letters L and U
