I have a symbol that appears that is listed as
What exactly does the
<.ctor> mean? Or the
b__8() for that matter?
This member is a method generated by C#'s compiler for a lambda expression or anonymous delegate used in
MyClass's constructor. The part in
<> is the name of the method where the lambda expression/anonymous delegate was seen, and
b__8 is just a meaningless suffix to make the method name unique.
NB: this naming scheme is an internal implementation detail of C#'s compiler. Don't rely on it if you can help it.
Apparently, the <.ctor> simply is the constructor. The b__8() represents a lamba in that method.
