Examples of immutable structs in C#

Immutable structs fits nicely with value semantics. This is illustrated with the continuation of the example from the previous page.

An example of immutable points in C# and functional programming style

/user/normark/oop-csharp-1/sources/c-sharp/point/struct-immutable/Point.csThe struct Point - immutable.

/user/normark/oop-csharp-1/sources/c-sharp/point/struct-immutable/Client.csApplication the struct Point - immutable.

/user/normark/oop-csharp-1/sources/c-sharp/point/struct-immutable/outputOutput from the application.

There is a misfit between mutable datatypes and use of value semantics

It is recommended to use structs in C# together with a functional programming style
