[Mono-list] meaning of "protected internal"?
Tue, 8 Apr 2003 22:41:36 -0800
C# Specification 3.5.1
a.. Protected internal (meaning protected or internal), which is selected by
including both a protected and an internal modifier in the member
declaration. The intuitive meaning of protected internal is "access limited
to this program or types derived from the containing class".
