Nil != null?


#1

Hi
I had specs that used to work but now apparently they don’t anymore.
I’d expect that a nil from ruby maps to null in C# but this doesn’t seem
to
be the case.

I’m using the following code

    public static bool IsNotNull(this object value)
    {
        return value != null;
    }

    public static bool IsNull(this object value)
    {
        return value == null;
    }

ObjectExtensions.is_null(nil)
:0: can’t convert NilClass into Object (TypeError)

I’d expect it to return true :wink:
