Enumerable.AsEnumerable<'TSource> Method (IEnumerable<'TSource>)
Returns the input typed as IEnumerable<'T>.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
static member AsEnumerable<'TSource> : source:IEnumerable<'TSource> -> IEnumerable<'TSource>
Return ValueType: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<'TSource>
The input sequence typed as IEnumerable<'T>.
The type of the elements of source.
IEnumerable<'T> but also has a different set of public query methods available. For example, given a generic class Table that implements IEnumerable<'T> and has its own methods such as Where, Select, and SelectMany, a call to Where would invoke the public Where method of Table. A Table type that represents a database table could have a Wheremethod that takes the predicate argument as an expression tree and converts the tree to SQL for remote execution. If remote execution is not desired, for example because the predicate invokes a local method, the method can be used to hide the custom methods and instead make the standard query operators available.can be used to choose between query implementations when a sequence implements
