#1,047 – The Implicit Identity Conversion

One of the implicit conversions that exists in C# is the identity conversion, which states that an expression of a given type can be implicitly converted to that same type.

This sounds silly and unnecessary, but allows the compiler to know that assignments like the one below are allowed.

            int anInt = 12;

            // Identify conversion allows the
            // following assignment as an
            // implicit conversion
            int another = anInt;
