Zip method to merge IEnumerable sequences together

The Zip method allows us to join IEnumerable sequences together by interleaving the elements in the sequences.

Zip is an extension method on IEnumerable. For example to zip together a collection of names with ages we could write:

var names = new [] {"John", "Abraham", "Obama"};

var ages = new[] {22, 58, 36};

var namesAndAges = names.Zip(ages, (name, age) => name + " " + age); 

This would produce an IEnumerable<string> containing three elements:

  • “John 22”
  • “Abraham 58”
  • “Obama 36”
