It only has one method
Provides a form of deterministic destruction
public interface IDisposable
The Dispose method makes a call to GC.SuppressFinalize
Setting an object to null does not trigger the Dispose() method to be called
As a rule of thumb, when you use an IDisposable object you should declare and instantiate it in a using statement
This calls the Dispose method on the object in the right way.
This provides a convenient syntax that ensures the correct use of IDisposable objects.
using (StreamReader myReader = new StreamReader("C:\temp\myfile.txt")
The StreamReader is an example of a managed type that accesses unmanaged resources.
Any unmanaged resources or class libraries that contain unmanaged resources must implement the IDisposable interface.
This is equivalent to:
StreamReader myReader = new StreamReader("C:\temp\myfile.txt");
The using block ensures that the Dispose method is called even if an exception occurs.
It is possible to declare multiple instances of a type in a using statement.
using (StreamReader myReader1 = new StreamReader("C:\temp\myfile1.txt"),
StreamReader myReader2 = new StreamReader("C:\temp\myfile2.txt")
