Yes; first off IEnumerable was Microsoft implementation of functional programming algebras for a List. It is essentially a monadic data type that encapsulates List; monadic data types are typically designed to conform to a fairly standard set of functional algebras i.e. providing a common API for computations.


Err..no it wasn't.

IEnumerable existed long before linq. It wasn't added to the libraries in any way shape or form to support functional programming.

Now one could make an argument that they should have started from scratch when they did add linq but that is an argument and not a statement of fact.

One could also argue that they should have redid IEnumerable to support linq. However that argument would have been completely wrong since C# was a practical language not a university exercise. Redoing it would have broken the entire existing body of practical work that was using it. And would have been exactly the wrong thing to do for any language when attempting to enhance and not replace that language.
