In David Cumps’ blog there’s a nice article on boxing/unboxing. Nothing really new about that topic, but it’s well explained, so read it if you don’t know what he’s talking about. Another thing worth mentionable is that using Generics for collections is of course the easiest way to work around boxing problems, assuming .NET 2.0 is an option to you. See the C# Language specification 2.0 here for more information on that.
Sorry, this blog does not support comments. Why not?
I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
