Convert array of strings to integers with C# LINQ

Consider the following array of strings:

string[] numbersAsString = new string[] { "3", "1", "2", "4" };

You can easily convert each member and store them in an integer array with just one line of code:

int[] numbersAsInt = numbersAsString.Select(s => int.Parse(s)).ToArray();

You can sort the integers too:

int[] numbersAsInt = numbersAsString.Select(s => int.Parse(s)).OrderBy(s => s).ToArray();

You can view all LINQ-related posts on this blog here.
