Chapter 8 presented basic array-processing capabilities. All arrays implicitly inherit from the MustInherit class Array (namespace System). Array operty Length specifies the number of elements in the array. In addition, class Array provides Shared methods that provide algorithms for processing arrays. Typically, class Array overloads these methods—for example, Array method Reverse can reverse the order of the elements in an entire array or can reverse the elements in a specified range of elements in an array.
