Enumerable Tips & Tricks with String and Int

Useful things to do with Enumerable in a single line

System.Linq.Enumerable is a core of LINQ magic.

Most of the functions we use in a daily basis for anything we write with sequence, but what is really interesting is that methods from this class can be used for some tricky operations on strings and numbers and make them one line instead of loops.

Here are some which I found interesting.

Multiply string in one line

String.Concat(Enumerable.Repeat("*", 14))

Reverse an array


Range of numbers in array

Enumerable.Range(1, 10);

Complete list of static methods in Enumerable class you can find on MSDN website and direct link is listed in a refernces of this page.

Do you have any new interesting usage of Enumerable class method?
