I’ve finally decided to get in on that sweet, sweet Roslyn action and write myself an analyzer (please forgive the American spelling–since I’m programming against a series of types defined in American I’ve decided to use their spelling).
You’ll probably know I’m a big fan of functional programming and I’m trying to write my C# in a more functional style; I’ve found that you can get many of the benefits of functional programming even though you’re not writing in a functional language.
As it turns out, sometimes removing certain features from your programming language (or, at least, disallowing certain actions) can actually improve your code. An easy example of this is the goto statement; despite the fact that the C# language supports goto nobody uses it because it’s widely regarded as a harmful thing to do.
