[Ironruby-core] RubyArray to List<T> ?

RubyArray is IList<object>, its items might be of arbitrary (different) types.

You can certainly try to cast all of them to a single type:
            var list = new List<Tweet>(array.Count);
            foreach (Tweet item in array) {

Subject: [Ironruby-core] RubyArray to List<T> ?


I have a block of code which returns me a RubyArray back into C# code.
While I can get access to the strongly typed objects inside using reflection, I was wondering if there was any way to get the data back as a List<T> ?

Example of the code at the moment:
            RubyArray o = (RubyArray) filters[1].GetFilteredOutTweets(tweets);
            Console.WriteLine((o[0] as Tweet).User);

GetFilteredOutTweets returns an object as when it returned List<Tweet> it was causing it to fail.

Make sense?
