Q: How to join lists in C#?

+5 votes

I need to write a program that takes as input two lists of integers and joins them. The result should hold all numbers from the first list, and all numbers from the second list, without repeating numbers, and arranged in increasing order. The input and output lists are given as integers, separated by a space, each list at a separate line.

Here's my answer - you can see the comments for the explanation:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

class JoinLists
    static void Main()
        string[] firstArray = Console.ReadLine().Split();//USER INPUT 1ST ARRAY
        List<string> firstList = new List<string>();//ADD 1ST LIST

        for (int i = 0; i < firstArray.Length; i++)//POPULATE THE 1ST LIST WITH THE ELEMENTS OF THE 1ST ARRAY

        string[] secondArray = Console.ReadLine().Split();//USER INPUT 2ND ARRAY
        List<string> secondList = new List<string>();//ADD 2ND LIST

        for (int i = 0; i < secondArray.Length; i++)//POPULATE THE 2ND LIST WITH THE ELEMENTS OF THE 2ND ARRAY

        for (int i = 0; i < firstList.Count; i++)
            if (!secondList.Contains(firstList[i]))
        foreach (var VARIABLE in secondList)
            Console.Write("{0} ",VARIABLE);
