Iterators is a feature since .net 2.0. and simply use yield return which means that the current location in code is remembered to return each element one at a time.
here's a nice example from msdn:

Yes I am familiar with the examples there including the animals one and so on ....

And I read the articles concerning it but Im just not wrapping my head around it ...

I mean why would I want the current location in code remembered?

I am sure I am over looking the obvious ... was just hoping someone could give an example of how n why I might use it

I think Iterator is mainly used internally such as to implement the ForEach loops. I have never used it in my own code.
