More with Extension Methods and Implied Generic Arguments
I have previously written an article entitled "C# .NET -- Implied Generics in Extension Methods:
A Really Cool Way to Raise Events". This new article extends upon that to easily create
Tuple objects and
As you may recall from the mentioned article, the C# compiler has a really awesome ability to infer the . . .
