Chapter 2: Creating Simple LINQ Queries The custom version isn’t elegant, but it does the job. It begins by creating a new array that matches the data type of the source data. The code initializes the array and a counter used to track the current Results array element. The foreach loop processes the source array. Whenever the source array contains a value that matches the criteria, it places the value in the Results array. When the processing is complete, the code passes the array back to the caller.

Lambda expressions: The lambda expression isn’t a new idea. In fact, it’s been around since Alonzo Church and Stephen Cole Kleene conceived it in 1936 and appears in languages such as LISP (LISt Processing), Scheme, and Haskell. You use lambda expressions as a means of defining an algorithm. In C#, you use lambda expressions to pass an algorithm to a method to perform tasks based on the algorithm, rather than using static values, lists, objects, or other means. ߜ Query expressions: It’s important to understand that the SQL-like syntax used for most of the examples in this book requires translation because C# doesn’t support this syntax natively as part of the language.

Most other operators provide special functionality that you may never need. This chapter reviews the standard operators available to all LINQ to providers. You’ll find other operators discussed in chapters that describe a specific provider. By combining keywords and operators, you can query, file, and group data from one or more data sources. In some cases, you can also manipulate the data in some way — a topic discussed in later chapters (starting with Chapter 6) because data manipulation is provider specific.
