A resource is an object that holds state. Examples of resources include a file on disk, a message queue for a process, and a named Mutex. Knowing an object is a resource does not indicate its appropriate use; the important property of a resource is the scope of the resource. The scope includes both the type and the visibility of the resource. The resource type specifies whether the resource is a machine-level resource, such as a file on disk, a process-wide resource, such as a block of non-shared memory, or an application domain-level resource, such as a lock on an instance of a non-marshal by reference object. The visibility scopes are and , the default is Public, which is implicit if or are not indicated. There is no enumeration value for Public.
