How do I convert the following to C#

struct fpoint : pair<double> {
    fpoint() : pair<double>() { }
    fpoint(double x, double y) : pair<double>(x, y) { }
};

The C# equivalent could be

public struct fpoint : System.Collections.Generic.KeyValuePair<double,double> {
    fpoint() : base() { }
    fpoint(double x, double y) : base((x, y) { }
};

Soory, had my mind tilted towards C++ a bit too much - does

public struct fpoint : System.Collections.Generic.KeyValuePair<double,double> {
    fpoint() : base() { }
    fpoint(double x, double y) : base() { key = x; value = y; }
};

I disagree slightly, but I don't think it's of major concern. From what I read, the Tuple class would be closer to the exact match for pair.

e.g.

public class fpoint : Tuple<double, double>
{
    public fpoint() : base(default(double), default(double)) { }
    public fpoint(double x, double y) : base(x, y) { }
}

The reason I disagree is that in C# you cannot reassign struct members once you have created the instance--you have to create a second instance with the new values. This is because KeyValuePair is a value type. A Tuple is a reference type, so you can reassign its member even after the instance is created. Albeit in either case there is no swap method, so you'd need to roll your own.

Actually, never mind. The Tuple's members are read-only also. I saw "tuple" mentioned in the documentation I linked to, so I naturally thought it would be the equivalent. I think either data structure would yield the same results.

Of course, you could always write your own class/struct to be an exact match!
