This entry updated after a night’s sleep and the return of my cerebral cortex.
In one of my earlier entries you’ll find something approximating this bit of nonsense…
public string DoSort(List<string> words)
List<string> temp = words.Sort(); // No, but thanks for playing.
words.Sort(); // sorts list in place.
For those of you who commented on my earlier attempt to explain how this would compile I can only tell you that I carefully tested it, but must have been sleep walking. I have a section in both of my books on C# that clearly says I was wrong, I have no idea what brain malfunction caused this, but I find that when this kind of thing happens the best thing is to take a nice long bath and throw the radio in.
