I'm teaching myself C# and am doing my first project. I would like to use Linq to query a bus schedule, so that at any time I can get the next 5 bus arrival times. How can I limit my query to the first 5 results?
More generally, how can I take a slice of a list in C#? (In Python I would use mylist[:5] to get the first 5 elements.)
var firstFiveItems = myList.Take(5);
Or to slice:
var secondFiveItems = myList.Skip(5).Take(5);
And of course often it's convenient to get the first five items according to some kind of order:
var firstFiveArrivals = myList.OrderBy(i => i.ArrivalTime).Take(5);
