[Ironruby-core] Linq syntax?

Method of Queryable take expression trees. Ruby lambdas are not convertible to expression trees.
You need to build the expression tree yourself.

Subject: [Ironruby-core] Linq syntax?


What would be the syntax to call Linq methods?

for example:
I have an IQueryable<Users> and I want to get the equivalent out of

from user in MyRepository.Users
where user.name<http://user.name> == "somename"

That of course is only one example, I want to do a lot more :)

My best guess is that I would have to do something like this only it doesn't work

System::Linq::Queryable.where(MyRepository.Users, lambda { |user| user.name<http://user.name> == "somename" })

yields wrong number of arguments (2 for 2147483647)

So what is the correct way?
