Visual LINQ

LINQ is a nice way to write a more readable code but sometimes it is diffucult to understand the actions and the order they happens.

Visual LINQ project would give you an idea (watch the screencast of Visual LINQ in action) :

So for this query

VisualSource<string> words = new VisualSource<string>
    (new[] { "the", "quick", "brown", "fox", "jumped", 
             "over", "the", "lazy", "dog" }, 
     canvas, "words");
var query = from word in words
            where word.Length > 3
            select new { Word = word, Length = word.Length};
pipeline = query.End(); 

you will see similar screens:
