So, continuing on the thread of Everything is an object, let’s look at other items in the C# language that you might want as an object.

 

References.   See our previous work on IReference & friends for an example of how this can be powerful.

 

Expressions.  Suppose you could do:

 

     Expression e = new Expression (1 + 2);

     int x = e.Evaluate();

 

     q = customers.select (zipcode = 90210);

 

Note that I don’t pass a string here; I really pass a C# expression.  We see something like this with anonymous methods, but I’m going a bit further here.

 

Got any other ideas?
