Strange but true: using a keyword as a variable

Can you use a keyword as an argument, or any other kind of local variable? Why would you want to do that? That aside: how?

Easy! Just use the @ in front of any keyword and you can now use it as a variable. For example:

class Program


  static void UsingKeywordArg(string @string)





  static void Main(string[] args)


    UsingKeywordArg("Hello world");




I found this while digging through some generated code from workflow foundation 4. Cool!
