.NET comes with lots of new features as it introduces new features. Many of them are quite useful while others might be very specific to an issue. One of the features that came up recently with the introduction of .NET 3.5 in C# is anonymous method. Anonymous means an object with no name. Before .Net 3.5 we had concept of anonymous delegates in C#. If you read about internals of delegate, you must already know how anonymous delegates are declared to CLR. In fact, there is no concept of anonymous in MSIL. Hence everything that you see as anonymous is actually a level of abstraction to us, and lets us to avoid the complexity to maintain unnecessary types to our program. In this post, I will discuss about anonymous type in terms of MSIL.
