1. They are not the same. One is prefix and the other is postfix for a couple of reasons. But it *would* be the same here, sort of. Except in C++, i++ creates a copy of I, whereas ++i is just the simple asm "inc ax" basically. i++ isn't quite as efficient.

I code in C++, so this is habit. In fact I want to call this ++C Big Grin | :-D You'll find others with C++ backgrounds sometimes use ++i too.


2. Yes I really like foreach, and I use it a lot. But not if I don't have to. Frankly, if it didn't create an object on the heap every foreach, I'd probably use it almost everywhere.

3. Because look carefully. In that loop I'm modifying the passed in collection. I work only on a copy. You cannot modify a collection you are currently enumerating. Hence I must make a copy, enumerate that and work on result. Also note that's in a loop. I create this copy each time around, because I must.

And a note on your code.

for(var i = 0;i<list.Count;++i);
is somewhat less efficient than

for(int ic=list.Count,i=0;i<ic;++i);
because you're calling Count on every iteration when you don't have to.

alse HandleRules is unnecessary. Literally all you factored was the loop itself.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
