So there's this thing in .NET called the "default binder" which has methods like BindToMethod() and BindToProperty().

What it does is it tells .NET how to resolve things like overloaded methods and choose which one is appropriate based on the passed in arguments.

Reflection uses it underneath Type.InvokeMember() and the C# compiler (as well as other compilers) almost certainly use it to help with choosing what methods to bind to (on external types) within a method/property group.

The docs use words like "generally". I wish I was joking. As in generally it only does widening conversions on parameters.

I don't care about generally. I care about specifics, because I have to emulate it for my own non-compiled types.

Sigh | :sigh: it's off to the reference source (again)
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.
