[IronPython] C#, Types and IronPython

The C# typeof(typeid) operator doesn't take a string.  Instead, it takes the type identifier and returns an object representing that type.  It's basically a compile-time operation.

The framework's Type.GetType methods are runtime operations that take some input (eg, a string containing the name of a type, or a variable whose type you want to know) and return the appropriate Type object.

Hello all,

Despite my previous email, I still need some help. :-)

I have some C# that is getting at type objects in several different 
ways, and I would like to know the difference.


and I think :


What are the differences in semantics between 'typeof(...)' and 
'Type.GetType(...)' ?

All the best,
