Dear Friends,

I have a doubt in .net collections:

Once we converted the value from int to char or lets say it another way
what is happening with Stack and heap memory allocations in boxing and unboxing?

Can any one explain me what is happening for memory occupation in stack and heap in this process.....?

Regards
Komala

Boxing is the process of converting a value type to the type object or to any interface type implemented by this value type. When the CLR boxes a value type, it wraps the value inside a System.Object and stores it on the managed heap. Unboxing extracts the value type from the object. Boxing is implicit; unboxing is explicit. The concept of boxing and unboxing underlies the C# unified view of the type system, in which a value of any type can be treated as an object.
