I'm starting to like this C# thing

Now, I guess all the Java coders out there have had this for ages, but I just ran into this incredibly helpful error message while doing a bit of C#.

<-- do not write code like this at home; it's just an example.

That is really handy.  One of the more common errors in C code.  A decent C/C++ compiler will say something along the lines of:

warning C4706: assignment within conditional expression

But if, for example, you've included a library that spits out hundreds of warnings when you compile with /Wall, that sort of thing tends to get lost.
