public sealed class PureAttribute : Attribute

The PureAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodPureAttributeInitializes a new instance of the PureAttribute class.

Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Methods and types that are marked with this attribute can be used in calls to System.Diagnostics.Contracts.Contract methods. Pure methods do not make any visible state changes. This attribute is not enforced by the current analysis tools; you should use this attribute only if you are sure that the methods are pure.
