Collection to loop through by a named reference

Collection to loop through by a named reference

Collection to loop through by a named reference

What I currently have is a list of strings like this:

CODE --> c#

string first = string.Empty;
string second = string.Empty;

//Do something with first

//Do something with second 

What I really want to be able to do is loop through a whole set of these strings, carrying out the same operation on each one. What I need to be able to do through the rest of the code is be able to reference it by something a little more meaningful than ARRAY[index] and would prefer something like javascript where I could say:


and use those new values after the loop by name in the rest of the code.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Check out Hashtable http://www.dotnetperls.com/hashtable


There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.
